    Nope - it was a microwave transmission tower, similar to the type located at Elsham Wolds, Spitalgate and near Crowland. I have a newspaper cutting somewhere about it being demolished, perhaps ten years ago or more.

    It was located where the Danger Buildings mentioned upthread stood.

    Thanks Paul; that was here:

    I wondered what the 'compound' on that spot was used for. I'm surprised that an established tower was dismantled with all the cell phones in use today.

    Crowland has been demolished too, back when they did the newest bypass.

    I have heard today that Kirton is being handed over to a developer on Friday of this week and will be bulldozed ready for houses to be built.

    The source of the information is very reliable.

    Did they advertise it for sale at all, and have they moved out the Scampton-based single officers & NCOs who were reputedly living there?

    The officers mess has been retained but the Tech Site and airfield are sold off now.

    Not sure if it was advertised but i know that the last day for any personnel to get on base is tomorrow.

    Interesting - would have like to get a copy of the sales particulars if it had come to the market in the normal way. Sales particulars are always a good way of getting a site plan.
