Bmewss At Fylingdales - a Memory of Fylingdales Moor.
In 1962, my family (father, mother, one brother, and I) lived in Whitby and Goathland while my father, a mechanical and electrical engineer, was working on the design and construction of the Ballistic Missile Early Warning Signal System at Fylingdales, a cooperative project of the United States and Great Britain. These "golf balls," as they were called, loomed over the moors. To find photographs of the installation 45 years later has been wonderful. I understand that this installation has since been replaced with other structures. I hope to return to see them later this year.
