Leading Observer:
Project High Force

High Force was the code name given to the RAF tests of the German Wasserfall Anti-Aircraft Missile system in early 1946 – High Force is a waterfall in County Durham.
Following Germanys defeat in May 1945, in addition to V-2 Rockets, the British also managed to acquire a number of Wasserfall Anti-Aircraft Missiles from sites in Northern Germany where they had been delivered from Peenemünde for use. These missiles were taken back to Britain for evaluation, as RAF personnel had soon recognised the potential of these for use against high flying bomber streams.
A small test facility was built at Spadeadam in northern Cumbria, as the Spadeadam area was remote and largely uninhabited and known as Spadeadam Waste. Spadeadam was chosen as a launch site because of its isolation combined with nearby infrastructure capable of supporting it with such as a plentiful water supply, access to the National Grid and road connections. The site was known as RAF Spadeadam.

The site was controlled by the RAF. The missiles were assembled on site, using both British and German personnel, and a number of launches were successfully carried out, with one successfully destroying a Lancaster target drone.
The information gathered was then passed via the Air Ministry to British Companies developing indigenous systems. In 1955 the site at Spadeadam became the Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile Test Centre and extra faciliies were built for the Blue Streak missile project, before reverting to RAF control in 1976.
