  • Very interesting loop walk, 1 hour walking, 2 hours if stopping at the points of interest. Great history lesson, I had no knowledge of the Marconi station before visiting here.
  • Nice walk when sunny(ish)
  • The most pictures here are not taken at the landing place. The are from a place nearby, the Marconi Radio Station. Also a important historic place. I made a new point on Google Maps and placed some picture as well.
  • It’s in a field full of animal poop so expect flies, but it’s a nice monument and well worth the visit.
  • A must for a) radio amateurs, and b) aviators :-) Interesting site in a beautiful landscape! 73, HB9DHT
