NO22Se 18.02 27098 24590

The derelict control tower is situated about 50m inside the perimeter track on the N side of the airfield.
The tower is visible on RAF WW II vertical air photographs (NLA 68, 3089-3090, flown 27 August 1943), as a square falt-roofed building orientated NW-SE. The photographs also show that there were three smaller buildings and an emergency air-raid shelter immediately to the SW, all of which have since been removed.
