BHD - Berry Head VOR/DME

28th April 2003

Berry Head VOR/DME is in the middle of the Berry Head Nature Reserve at Brixham in Devon. There's a country walkway that goes right past the beacon.

Easiest way to access is to park at the Nature Reserve car park and walk.

A couple of walkers stopped me and asked me what the beacon was. I think they got more than they bargained for in explanation!!

(You can see that the DME aerial is not centrally mounted. Cental is the more common arrangement.)
