May be of interest.
This'll be the one.
Looks of the period to me too, in fact i photographed it as well on my visits to the base.
May be of interest.
Thought it was about time I put up some of my pics from my visit to Deopham Green on Sunday 24th June.
Nissen hut at Bush Green Farm, just East of the Southernmost spectacle hardstanding
Never realised when I was here in 1999 that there is a small building (or the remains of it at least) to the left of the Nissen
Another building on Bush Green Farm. Any ideas what this is?
Track leading towards the South spectacle hardstanding, with a small building on the left hand side
Perimeter track at SW corner of airfield site
West end of main runway
Main runway looking West
Intersection of W/E runway
Perimeter track at North East of airfield site
Hut base at Stalland Farm, now sadly without the Nissen hut that was here in 1999, stuffed with bales.
More pics in next post!!
Couldn't resist this shot of driving back along the main runway!!
Section of NW/SE runway by memorial site.
Not sure if this is airfield related. Its on the old technical site on Stallard Farm, just down the road from the memorial.
Runway leading NW from memorial site
Perimeter track looking North, towards the site of the tower.
This looks airfield related, any ideas? Its on Stallard Farm (Technical Site)
This is opposite Stallard Farm, again, any ideas as to what it is?
Track leading to Site 10.

Very nice photographs there Danbuoy, I didn't realise there was still so much to see. We've called there a few times since 1987 trying to find the murals [Robin Hood etc, I believe?] everyone we asked knew nothing about them... so they said !! Anybody got some photographs of these, or know if they still exist. Just found 'em at the start of this thread whereabouts are they REF.

Believe that they are in the library on the Communal Site, and as far as I know are still there.
The murals are still there, I saw them in May while visiting with Ron Batley of the 100th BG Museum. They are in the building identified as the library in the previous photos which I believe was part of the Officers Club.
Also, the fellow that owns the property has a map like the one shown in Post #19, might be the same one. He said the building in the corner was the CO's quarters and due to be demolished soon.
