    Hello Richard,

    I worked at the tower 1949/50 and I don't think there was anything like that circular pit there at the time. Not sure that takes us very far but it looks as if something was intended was intended to rotate there. Suggests armament of some kind.

    Re the old tower being to the north; in my time there was a VHF D/F homer north of the tower that could have been of an earlier vintage than VHB.

    I'v only just come across this, but there was light machine gun emplacement called a 'Motley Stalk', two of which are at Templeton, and it looks similar to the round concrete ring in your pic - could it be that?
    Does anyone here know anything about this Motley Stalk?

    There is a photo of a Motley Stalk here

    Can anyone identify the airfield in the link above?

    Motley Stalk has got to be something ex Monty Python, or from The meaning of Liff.

    E.g. BANFF (adj.) Pertaining to, or descriptive of, that kind of facial expression which is impossible to achieve except when having a passport photograph taken.
