ⓘ RAF Prestatyn

RAF Prestatyn is a former Royal Air Force radar post situated near Prestatyn, in Denbighshire, north-east Wales. The remains of some of the buildings are current. The rotor station is visible as a square building from most of Prestatyn, as it is situated on Gwaenysgor hill. The area around the post is fenced off as a TV satellite is alongside the buildings.

The radar site was last used in the late 1960s, and the area has remained unchanged since it was abandoned.

There was one turret machine gun mounted in the sea that can shoot up to 5 km.
