Kete - the buildings running along the coast up to RAF Dale were military. The first military station here was RAF Kete, which opened early during World War Two. Kete was not an airfield, but a Chain Home Low (CHL) radar station, with the role of tracking low-flying enemy aircraft, and training radar technicians and Fighter Direction Officers. n 1943 the control of Kete passed to the Royal Navy, and it became HMS Goldcrest 2 (Goldcrest 1 was Dale airfield). In 1948 it was commissioned as HMS Harrier, a Royal Navy Fighter Direction School and School of Meteorology. At its peak, the huts of HMS Harrier provided accommodation, classrooms and offices for over 1500 sailors, ‘wrens’ and civilians employees. HMS Harrier closed in 1960. Afterwards the derelict buildings were cleared (apparently by bulldozing them, judging by the heaps of building material piled up in banks around the site!) The freehold of Kete was passed to the National Trust in 1967. Information from - http://www.walking-guides.co.uk/dale/14-kete.html

Memory lane - Dale Fort. Dale Fort was a mid-19th century coastal artillery fort at Dale Head; it is now a Field Studies centre which I attended as a 6th Former back in 1962-63 for a week, to study the Littoral Zone. Despite the isolated site, we did manage to enjoy ourselves.
