“Starfish and Subterfuge” A Mendip Society Talk

February 16, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm


A talk with Mike Chipperfield of the Mendip Society.

During the Second World War decoy sites called ‘Special Fire’ or SF sites were created in a nationwide top secret project in the country’s defence system.  One early site on the Mendip Hills was given the name “Starfish” which then became code for all decoy sites.  They were controlled from nearby bunkers and the one on the Mendips is still there today.

Booking not required.

Cost: £3.50 (Mendip Society members £2.00) including refreshments.
