NORTH HILL, EXMOOR:

In 2015, the Exmoor National Park Authority were improving access to and awareness of sites on North Hill, an area of Exmoor moorland above Minehead which was used extensively for military training during World War Two. These sites included tank training circuits, and a radar station which formed part of the Chain Home Low radar system. 

 

The final reconstructions were used as part of outreach events at the sites, and formed the core of on-site interpretation panels and are now used in Teaching education packs.
