Comments:

Plumer Barracks is situated between some residential housing and the B3413. Mike Smith, who took photos 2 & 3, comments: "It's difficult to get a nice photo, especially on this rainy day!"

The site once carried the south-west regional opt-out of R4 on 855 KHz before the start of BBC Radio Devon on the same frequency. The site also once carried BBC R2 on 693 KHz before Start Point came into service around 1980.

The latest development at Plumer Barracks is that that following the opening of an FM service of BBC Radio Devon for Plymouth on 95.7 from Plympton the BBC have closed the AM service on 855kHz and are now using it to test a DRM service.
