    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.

    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

    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.

    Sadly from that photo it looks like the majority of the LE has already been removed.
    It also appears that the other two LEs had been grubbed out previously.

    More LE studs lost before they could be recorded I'm afraid.

    My wife and I spent last weekend exploring a few old airfields centered around Bardney Lincolnshire. The main reason i am writing this is to inform anybody who fancies doing the same i can recommend a decent B&B, it is at the former Bardney railway station although the original station was demolished an exact replica has been built a couple of ex BR wagons have been bought and tastfully turned into B&B rooms with a double bed and bathroom including a shower cost was 55 per night which included a full english breakfast. if interested the phone No is 01526 307299 well recommended
