    Graham, Post 125 informed that the GE '1945' imagery is actually '1955' which is why I revised my opinion to post-war.

    Sorry, don't blame the 'search' feature, I was having a 'bad glasses' day when I wrote that!

    I meant Post 29 this thread.

    'twas I that stated it was circa 1955.

    The GE coverage is labelled "1945" but in fact it's made up of images from various flights between 1945 and 1960 I believe. It's just been stitched together. I have reams of aerial photos of the Northleach/Windrush/Bibury area and comparing those and various local buildings who construction date I know of I've managed to deduce that the coverage in GE for that area is about 1955.

    Yes, I understand that the GE 1945 dating is nominal.

    Good. Still a visible link to the airfield and a lease of life for the structures.
