Some history about the Greenwich time signal....

"At one time, some of the most accurate clocks in the world snuggled in the 
folds of Surrey beauty spot Leith Hill.  Why, because some of the most 
accurate compasses in the world were already there.  Just before World War 
Two, a duplicate of the famous Greenwich Observatory was set up at a place 
called Abinger Bottom to protect the UK’s national timing resource."
