Part of the former ‘Chain Home’ defence system in the UK, RAF Neatishead played a important role in World Wars and through the Cold War. The station motto was Caelum Tuemur, meaning “We Watch over the Sky”. The station crest depicts the lowered head of a horned bull and relates to the origins of the word “Neatishead”.

On the same site is a R3 Nuclear Bunker which formed part of the UK’s NBC (Nuclear, biological and Chemical warfare) reporting complexes.

Since 2006, the RAF site has become a remote radio head and the land sold for electrical production using solar. The R3 Nuclear Bunker remains for sale.
