Has the Thor LE been cleared for removal/excavation?
I checked GE recently to see how the place has changed. The blast walls on all three pads have now been cleared but why one pad has been exhumed I dunno.
I'm trying to tie up a few last locations for Battle headquarters.
I'v got the site plan but there is nothing listed but the EH Pastscape
Data base says the BHQ is in an open field to the east of the airfield
But this looks like as tigger says the decoy bunker, heres the kicker
Pastscape gives the OS grid REF as TF14840 71462 which puts it
Just off the airfield site to the east in the woods.
Does anybody have any better info to its location, it looks like there
Is a footpath that runs thought the woodlands but any further help
Would be good, I don't want to spend hours crashing through woods
Only to come up empty.
Cheers mike tucknott
The Austacre Wood existed pre-war. It was necessary that a BHQ had a clear field of view over the airfield so if it is near to the location that you say then it should be on the edge of the wood or slightly within allowing for new growth.
