I can confirm that Clee Hill was a GEE radar transmitter station. It was still operational in 1953-4, when I was stationed there as a telephonist, in charge of the one-man PBX exchange. At times there were only two of us on strength, so we had to operate a 24-hour on-off shift system.
The picture of the concrete building ruins shows the admin block, which housed the telephone exchange next to the guard room on the extreme right of the building. On the far left were the CO's and adjutant's offices.

The site in the photos is on Brown Clee Hill.

These [URL="[URL="http://wtp2.appspot.com/wheresthepath.htm?lat=52.47858844674007&lon=-2.5947096415446906&gz=20&oz=10&gt=1"]remains[/URL] are a hundred metres or so away from the building but may have been associated with the mine railway rather than WW2 - unless anyone knows different ! The photo was taken looking north.

When I first visited the radio station on this hill in the mid-70s the burnt remains of a Wellington were still visible close by, including a complete u/c leg with wheel sticking out of a pool.... I had difficulty yesterday locating the area where the most of the remains once were.
