Three areas of Nissen huts and buildings totalling about 70 structures (centred ND 0035 6625, ND 0020 6590 and ND 0035 6565) are visible on a postwar RAF vertical air photograph (106G/Scot/UK133, 3171, flown 30 June 1946). In all three areas the current OS digital 1:2500 scale map depicts only three structures.
