    Simon,

    Is this the building at TL 7239 9229? Do you know its current condition and whether there are any internal features of interest?

    Joneshines, these are the group of buildings located at TL 7239 9229, I think it was an accomodation / living site but I don't have my site plan to hand so can't confirm. Photos taken on 15 February 2009.

    Thanks, Richard. It's clearly not the gym/chapel, which I thought I'd spotted on Google earth. I'll have to keep on looking!

    As a very sproggy ATC cadet I did a touch and go here from RAF Feltwell in a Harvard.. Proud of that now that I know more
