This gallery contains a publication by European Antennas in 2001 entitled “The Electron Building”
a brief history of the ‘Old Radio Station’ Cheveley, Lamda House and the Electron Building.
The publication was an excellent initiative by European Antennas to record some of Cheveley’s history
following their purchase of the site five years earlier from NTL, who had previously acquired DTELS
in 1994 and had subsequently taken a decision to close and sell the site.
