Horsley Tower is a rectangular structure, four stories high, thought to date from the 16th Century and now a Grade II* listed building. It had been renovated in the 1930s and was home to Charles Webb. After the war his son found the concealed wireless room and shared the find with his friend Bill Ricalton.
To access the room, all the tools and bottles had to be removed from the shelves in the corner of the garage. A shelf was then folded down exposing a bolt which was undone, removing the panel and allowing access to the door behind. This opened into a small soundproofed room that when discovered was said to contain a wireless and accessories, also a bench and two chairs.
