Calverton’s contribution to the war effort

Calverton’s main local contribution to the WW2 war effort was playing host to two radio stations associated with Bletchley Park’s secret radio communications centre at Whaddon Hall some 2 miles away to the south.

The larger of the two stations was near Upper Weald (therefore named Weald station). Calverton’s second radio station was located close to the centre of the village in a field called ‘The Leys’ to the south of All Saints Church,
