    I'm reliably informed that a fair few of the old airfield buildings were dismantled and rebuilt on some of the farms around the airfield in the 1960s - I wonder how many are still being used....

    This may be of interest - an area off limits to public (I am lucky to have permission to go there) - these bunkers are concealed in woodland. There's quite a few of them - it's a bit creepy in these wooded areas and nature as you can see is trying to take over.

    Amost your namesake! Photos 1, 3 & 4 are Stanton Air-raid Shelters. Photo 2 is a Blast Shelter.

    Good stuff. Any clues as to where these are? (if possible?)

    These blast shelters are off limits as the area is farmland and that also includes shooting activities taking place - I have permission to be there for that reason. So I wouldn't advise anyone to start wandering all over the place as it can be dangerous. Even I have to be cautious as it is not only shotguns but also rimfires in use over there.

    But basically these are the same as what can be seen at Earls Colne or more precisely Marks Hall estate.
