Walked the reasonably secure perimeter fencing but no weak points and decided not to attempt the trespass. Adjacent site occupied by NATS radar, worker-bees were on site, chatted with them for access to the other site but they didn't have authority or means to allow me in. Did say they had been on the other site and there were plenty of concrete remains there. One of the WWII Chain Home radar stations was located here; bombed by the Luftwaffe it was put out of action for some time but a temporary radar was quickly set up in Bembridge Fort so Germans believed they hadn't disabled the radar after all and decided against further bombing runs on it - story from the Bembridge Fort guide on our visit the following day.

SU31 T258 CENTRE and BOLT. Reported destroyed 04/57 There are remains behind the chain link fence but who knows if what these were! Site has an adjacent radar station which is still active, so secure.
