Archaeology Notes

NT17SE 70.11 1559 7388

A type 27 pillbox has been identified from post-war RAF vertical air photographs (106G/Scot/UK 119, Pt.I, 5026-7, flown 20 June 1946) about 470m W of the main aircraft hangar (NT17SE 70.04). The pillbox was demolished when the runway configuration was altered during the conversion to a civilian airport.
