    Thanks, that's encouraging. Are the current owners amenable to having JCB 'digs'

    Oh yes! Thank goodness - a 'big yellow trowel' is going to be doing the hard work instead of us! There is so much ground to get through that we have decided the only way forward is to bring in the digger. And soon

    About 2-3 years ago, my eldest sister and here husband found what looked like a well. they un-screwed the top and there was a ladder. they went in and there were loads of cold war papers, signal machines etc. down there. i only heard about this last night in a conversation about abandoned buildings and bunkers etc. this was in the field next to the TA army barracks. i hope this helps and keep me posted

    If you need a spare trowel let me know, its not a big one though.

    It may be a red herring but also just could make a lot of sense as the TA Barracks is the former RAF Spitalgate / Spittlegate.

    Sounds more like an ROC post than anything else. It's in the wrong place for the Grantham one though.

    Nearest ROC post to Grantham is at SK90193299, on the edge of what was once RAF Harlaxton.
