Archaeology Notes

ND35NW 27.08 centred 3180 5692

The main technical and domestic area for the airfield is situated between W side of the runways and the B876 road. Many buildings survive in the former technical area which surrounds the farmsteading at Andor. The buildings are mainly in use as animal sheds or for farm vehicles.

Within this group is a gas decontamination centre.
