  • Description

    A four million pounds radio station - built on land where Hadrian started work on the roman wall - was opened to-day. The station - on the windswept Cumberland coast near Anthorn Village will provide added communication facilities for NATO. It's designed to flash very low frequency messages across the World at the speed of light. The station which is the biggest of it's kind in Europe was officially handed over to-day to the G.P.O. who'll act as agents for NATO. It's built on the site of a former Royal Naval Air Station. 20 miles of cable were used in building the telegraph aerial which is supported by 13 masts reaching between 600 ft and 750 ft high.
