The Horsingdon Transmissions No.210: The Howling Tower
The above transmitter array was the product of a joint project between the Ministry of Defence and the Northwich Park University's Department of Radiophonics. The purpose of the project remains shrouded in mystery, and supposedly the transmitter is no longer operational - which makes it all the more curious as to why it remains guarded behind a tight net of security.
However, the lattice of rumour which constitutes so much of the social weave and fabric of Horsingdon says otherwise: that soon after the tower became operational, it began emitting a stream of howling static which broke the minds of all those who listened to it. Apparently technicians working on the project were never able to fully shut the signal down - which continued to be transmitted even after the array was disconnected from its power source; they did, however, manage to limit the range of the signal to a scant few metres.
It is said that the transmitter still continues to omit a stream of unbearable sonic awfulness - presumably drawn from some unseen, undimensioned and uncharted realm of abject horror - within the radius of the small and long-overgrown field which it occupies to this day.
