    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.



    The memorial



    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.



    Ambulance garage/mortuary (?) on Sick Quarters site.



    More pics to follow!

    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.
