WHI - Whitegate NDB

11th August 2003

The NDB is hidden in a forest about 3 miles NE of Tarporley in Cheshire.

I found it strange that the beacon is called Whitegate - the viilage of Whitegate is actually six miles away to the north east.

It's not easy to find. To get there, I took the A49 south west, crossing the A54 and subsequently taking the left turn towards Little Budworth. I turned right at the "T" junction and right again opposite Rushton Way onto the dirt track. The beacon is in the forest on the RHS.
