Archaeology Notes

NO60NW 49.18 63117 08968 and 63130 08847

Only the outline of the bases for two aircraft hangars can be discerned in an area now designated as a car park. The car park has been heavily landscaped which has almost totally obliterated the base of the hangar to the S, whilst the outline of that to the N can just be made out in the grass.

The two hangars are visible on RAF vertical air photographs (106G/Scot/UK 5, 4079-4080, flown 14 April 1946) and the area where one of the buildings stood is shown on the current OS 1:2500 scale digital map as a pecked outline.
