    Balderton is another of those sites where it's hard to imagine it was ever an airfield..
    Not even sure if this building in the pic below is airfield related or not. Thought i'd post it anyway. Any ideas anyone? -

    Another view-

    Transformer building -

    Hidden away in the undergrowth -





    Cheers

    I may have got his wrong, but I seem to remember having a discussion with Howard from NAM about this back in April 2011, I think he was saying originally there had been talk on an information board near the new Tawny Owl pub, but as this was off the site of RAF Balderton alternatives were being looked at. Not heard any more about it since. I'm not sure if he wasn't looking for photos of the control tower as well.

    Spoke to Howard this afternoon about 'The Tribute to the V-Force' programme up and coming http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/newsItem.php?id=542 , so I asked him about the Balderton Memorial and sadly he's heard no further information about it, sorry.
