Church & State, God & the Bomb

Atop Beacon Hill, overlooking Holme upon Spalding Moor, five miles from Market Weighton, stands All Saints church. "Holme" refers to the hill, about which the land is otherwise flat, as the word is Danish for an island. The church is of the thirteenth century, with walls of both stone and brick.

A couple of hundred yards away is an ROC post (YMGW passim), complete with an Orlit-made, pre-cast reinforced concrete, aircraft spotting post of the 1950s. This one is a type B, on stilts. The steel door is still present, although detached from its hinges.
