Boldon House was the location of a "Y station", a listening post operated by the Royal Navy. "At the start of the war, the navy had only one wireless station for intercepting messages, at Stockton"



Boldon House is still standing, but is now in the middle of Elm Tree housing estate.

This is fascinating. Do you have more information about when the Y Station was being used?

No firm dates but reported as the only available facility at the out break of war in 1914. It's roles included tracking u-boat, surface ship and zeppelin movements. I found a copy of an article from Fortress magazine in a local library that described the station in detail and the work being carried out.

I see the house is still standing but I wonder if any of the other buildings - the powerhouse and battery room - are still there. Can they be identified on the photograph?

I found a reference to the magazine article here:

There are two remaining buildings, the main brick building was the operations block (now a house), and the other brick building was the power/battery house (not sure what it is now, presumably a store).



The magazine article (Fortress, Issue No.8, Feb 1991, ISBN 1855120135) mentioned a wooden structure reported to of been constructed from a previous "L" shaped building on the site, but this also seems to be missing from recent pictures of the site. There was also mention that some of the anchor points for the masts were still in place and a small section of the original boundary fence was still in place (and still is), the fence post foundations have Navy anchor symbols on them. I will take a look next time I pass, which I do nearly every week.

Thank you for adding this 'local knowledge' which helps us to understand what is already known. It's interesting that there might still be some evidence to be seen - any chance of a photo?
