Archaeology Notes

NH87NW 21.10 85235 76303

N.B. Site falls on sheet NH87NE

Some 50m to the NW of the junction of the entrance to the airfield with the public B 9166 road to Balintore is the operations block. Built of brick and concrete, it is set into the ground with two external corriders , one to the rear and the other at the front, created in the space between a revetted bank and the sunken building. Internally there is a central corridor with a series of offices and rooms set off at right angles. Toilets were noted at each end of the corridor.

The operations block at Fearn is similar to one found at Arbroath Airfield (NO64SW 29).

Visited by RCAHMS (DE) January and May 1997
