    The BHQ at Bardney was to the East of the airfield but not as far out as the shelter on the decoy site at Gautby which I think is what your photos show.

    I agree with tigger, that's the Gautby Decoy Control Bunker it can be seen in Street View:

    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.

    Hi all
    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
