See the Sea
Another day and another walk. This time starting from West Runton, over the Beeston Bump, and back again. Townies might make the mistake of walking along the beach, it's better to walk along the cliff top.
During World War II the Beeston Bump was a 'Signals Intelligence site'. Operated by a range of agencies including Marconi Company and the Foreign office. Known as a 'Y-Station' signals would be collected and if encrypted sent to Bletchley park or Room 40 in London for decoding.
