Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): Puckeridge DECCA tower is one of the oldest and perhaps most impressionant antenna towers built for the DECCA navigation radio system, which was until the ninties a very important radio navigation system for ships and aircrafts.
Puckeridge DECCA tower is a free-standing tower standing on huge insulators, because its whole structure acts as antenna.
Puckeridge DECCA tower carried in its early days a horizontal cross on its top.

The city will be added not as Puckeridge, but as East Hertfordshire, as that is the local government district. Puckeridge is simply a village within this municipality.
