Secret Eastcote by Andy Weller
After the war the site was the first home for GCHQ during the Cold War. The site then operated in two parts. At the Eastcote Road end all branches of the U.S. military at some time used the site. At the Lime Grove end the site was used for UK Government purposes. These aspects are covered in the book and the author Andy Weller worked on the site in the 1980s.
Priced at £10 all money goes to the Friends of Eastcote House Gardens. Copies of the book are available from firstname.lastname@example.org (that is andy underscore Weller) or Lesley.Crowcroft@gmail.com
