    That's not a Dome Trainer, having looked at Google Earth images it's not on there. The area is just grass.

    I'm not an expert on dome trainers, but from my memory of my visit to NL, I think there is/maybe is one at 52deg.37.55.78N, 0deg.37.06.83W just to the south of the western hangar.

    So it is a Dome Trainer but a modern version.

    The Army used (still use?) dome trainers for Rapier missile training, Kirton-In-Lindsey also has one of these.

    "Villa" type control tower plus nearby radar workshop at an angle, both between taxiways...

    I'd say North Luffenham, with the first photo likely being taken from the roof of the eastern J-Type hangar.
