Join the Historic Excavation Underneath Radar Heights Cottage

Discover Whitsand Bay Fort’s Military History

Working with Hidden Heritage, this October will be the beginning of uncovering military history hidden beneath the depths of our new holiday cottage ‘Radar Heights‘. Additionally, as anyone who has stayed at the Fort will know, ‘Radar Heights’ was built back in the 1920’s and was used as a Radar Station to help protect the shores of Plymouth.  Buried for over 60 years, laying completely untouched are underground rooms that sit directly underneath the cottage.

Volunteer & Lend a Hand at our Excavation

On the 20th of October 2018, we will begin excavating the area, with enthusiasts and volunteers are invited to be part of this new discovery. We have spent time working with specialists at Whitsand Bay Fort and gaining authority to begin the deep discovery. Furthermore, identification of the stairs down to the hidden rooms have already been located. Now with the help of loaned machinery. Be here for this so this magical moment in history at our Fort to watch the hidden rooms be uncovered for generations to enjoy.

A Luxury Resort that puts History First

We’re proud of our rich history, and spend every moment we can exploring our land, artefacts and restoring architecture. Not to mention, we’re a resort that is anything but modernly perfect. We’re quirky in layout, design and combining modern builds with Napoleonic history. This is why we’re one of the unusual and unsuspecting beautiful areas of the country. Additionally, if you’re a history buff, spend your stay in luxury whilst exploring our architectural dig areas, our historic monument tours and eating within vaulted chambers!

Will you help us uncover this historic moment? Come along on the 20th October with family and friends to participate in the big military history dig!
