Archaeology Notes

NH87NE 34.04 85726 76953

Situated near the S perimeter fence is the brick built hospital block. The building is notable for having the water tank set on a small tower at the southern end and retaining many of the internal divisions. Despite having been used as an animal byre, the seating for wounded servicemen and the overhead shower facilties are still in situ along with a painted 'red-cross' set high on the wall at the northern end. It is likely that this building may also have been used in connection with the gas decontamination centre (NH87NE 34.03) for showering down wounded airmen.

Visited by RCAHMS (DE, PM) January and May 1997.
