Full description

An aerial photograph taken in August 1946 shows an experimental “floodlight” standing on grassland to the SE of Moulsham Lodge. The base of its generator building can be seen a few yards away to the W. <1>

The greater part of this area has now been built on and clearly nothing of the floodlight site now remains. Its approximate position is where No. 74 Waterson Vale now stands.
