Archaeology Notes

NT16NW 52.04 11837 65842 and 11821 65874

Two buildings situated to the E of the Bellman aircraft hangar (NT16NW 52.02), in use in connection with the present day occupation of the airfield.

Both buildings are postwar as they do not appear on RAF wartime or immediate postwar vertical photographs.

Information from RCAHMS (DE), March 2005

Both buildings are visible on oblique aerial photographs taken in February 2008 (RCAHMS 2008), which show that they are small aircraft hangars for light aircraft. Both have arched corrugated iron roofs and strengthened brick end gables.
