Admiralty Chart Establishment

This vacant lot would soon be the Oxgate Admiralty citadel building. It was a fortified building built just prior to WW2 as a relief building should the Admiralty facilities in Whitehall be put out of action. It was built next to an existing Admiralty chart factory.

Ramp up to the site of the former Welsh Harp Station, which had closed as long ago as 1903. The space between the lines shows where the single island platform used to be.

This image shows the GPO's Research Centre, Dollis Hill. This site was vital for the work undertaken to design and build Colossus, the World's first electronic, programmable computer in 1943. This became an essential part of the work at Bletchley Park in deciphering codes that the Germans considered unbreakable.



Dollis Hill was also the site of Paddock, the reserve Cabinet War Room completed in 1940.
