Criggion Radio Station

Rugby GBR’s sister station at Criggion (near Oswestry on the Welsh border) was built to provide a continuation of service in the event of damage to Rugby Radio Station during the war. Although Rugby escaped unscathed from enemy action, the services at Criggion were called upon after the fire at Rugby’s Main Building in 1943. Clearly a victory for forward planning. Criggion Radio Station’s towers and masts were demolished in August 2003.
