ROYAL OBSERVER CORPS VISUAL OBSERVATION AND NUCLEAR MONITORING POST
Loctaed on the edge of Buckden it is now a listed building for its historical importance.
Throughout the Second World War, the Royal Observer Corps (ROC) identified, tracked and plotted all aircraft flights giving timely warnings of raids to the RAF. Little wonder the ROC was known as the 'Eyes and Ears of the RAF'! By the end of 1954 an ROC post (officially known as an Orlit Type B visual observation post) was positioned on the edge of Buckden in a location with a good unrestricted view. This was to provide warnings of low flying enemy aircraft who would be able to fly under the RAF’s radar coverage at the time.
