The History of Beaumanor Hall
Beaumanor Hall has a rich and varied history. Built between 1842 and 1854 by architect William Railton for the Herrick family, it remained in their possession until World War II when the estate was requisitioned by the War Office. Throughout the war the Hall was used as a secret listening station to intercept encrypted enemy signals. The Hall was bought by Leicestershire County Council in 1974 for use as an education and conference centre.
Y Stations were British Signals Intelligence collection sites used during World War II. These sites collected traffic which was then passed for processing to the Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire. The traffic was recorded by hand and sent to Bletchley, on paper by motorcycle couriers, or later, by teleprinter over post office land lines.
Beaumanor Hall was requisitioned by the War Office in 1940 and set up as a Y Station. Buildings were erected in the grounds (which are still in place) disguised as cottages, barns, stables etc. These housed the intercept personnel listening for German and Italian encrypted messages.
