The Horsingdon Transmissions No.14: The Other Broadcasts
From Boreham Park, one can just see the transmitter pylon that rises from what used to be Northwich Park Polytechnic. At one time the pylon array belonged to the Polytechnic's Department of Radiophonics, until the Poly was colonised by one of Central London's universities and the department was closed down. Whilst no longer operational, rumour has it that this is the source of the rather unearthly and spectral signals - including what appears to be the Horsingdon variant of a numbers station - that sometimes interrupt the local radio broadcasts. In any case, regardless of what these analogue hauntings are, no one has yet been able to determine their origin. Rumour also has it that, back in the 50s and 60s, the transmitter array was used as part of some clandestine government project.
