    Thanks tigger
    The first photo is of the BHQ from the airfield itself and the second is looking back towards the airfield which is behind the conifer trees which were planted to act as soundproofing for the motor racing circuit !
    It is probably 20 years or so since my last visit but the building still appears to be in good condition and without any damage or vandalism . Unsurprisingly given the recent rain there is a small amount of water on the floor but I intend going back again during the summer and will check the door which I presume to be original for any stencilling ?
    tigger has also posted up more photos of this BHQ on his website . See Yorkshire - RAF Croft ; http://battleheadquarters.info/

    Matlaske Norfolk BHQ is now removed and a plantation set over top, thankfully I have some shots from last year although it was partially filled and in a sorry state.






    Very sad as this was just up the road from me.

    Middleton St George had two non-standard BHQs but only one now remains.

    What's happened to Goxhill, has the Cupola been sealed? Also never seen one that much exposed before!

    It's very good Mike, I assume it's still work in progress as some of the counties are still blank?

    Where is the 3329/41 located at Kings Cliffe? I was totally unaware of it's existence.
