    Below is a link to several National Archive documents that show the locations of Intercept and Direction Finding stations. The source of the documents is Nat Arch file HW 41/401.

    Google Docs

    Stations are labelled with the letters M,N,O & P. These refer to the type of station.
    M = Intercept station
    N + D/F station
    O = VHF station
    P = non-morse interception (high speed teleprinter type data)

    The documents were not dated but because so many stations are recorded they would have been issue around 1943-45. The INDEX document explains the grid references used.

    I know of a few places where you can still see traces of the stations and some continued into the cold war and significantly enlarged.

    All best

    Welcome Stan,

    Don't know if you've seen it but the 1970s BBC documentary "The Secret Listeners" is on the East Anglian Film Archive

    Well worth a viewing as it has some great interviews.
