    I am still none the wiser. All of your answers seem plausable. I must try & get the airfield plans that would put this matter to bed.

    This is a typical Main Intake Substation.

    Is this the building?

    If so it's not on the 1944 RSP. There was a small M&E plinth at that location, and the road layout has been significantly modified since that date.

    Yup, that's the one Graham.

    Looks like a Substation 13241/41 with another small room & additional blast walls tacked on alongside the two transformer rooms.

    Hi Guys
    What is the structure on the Charmy Down tower roof, the tower at Ibsley had something similar in wartime photographs. regards Ranger
