Conservation at Bawdsey

Small (about 5 lines) announcement in 'The Sun' for 11 Jan (which I buy for the wife, not for the tits) that the 'radar transmitter block' at Bawdsey has been awarded a 1.4M conservation grant from the National Lottery.

Excellent news. It is pleasing that UK is at last starting to appreciate its industrial, scientific, historic and artistic heritage.
