    Default Ossington

    I could have sworn there was already an Ossington thread here on AiX! It seems not obviously. Well..there is now -

    Heres a few pics i took at the airfield.-

    The two MT sheds at Ossington are BIG -



    The Gymnasium is certainly best appreciated in the winter. Absolutely impossible to get a decent view at the moment -



    M&E Plinth -




    I didn't have time for an explore of the bomb dumps unfortunatly and i couldn't find any sign of the BHQ thats still here apparently according to the 20th Century Defences in Britain book. I've also read elsewhere that there's a memorial in the village but i couldn't find any sign of it. A nice airfield to look over never the less and thanks to REF and NJR for the recce info .

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Pity, there would appear to be two extant Fuzing Point sheds
    I managed to see those from the road Peter. I didn't bother to post the pics in my original post as they didn't come out to clear (still getting used to my new camera). But here they are anyway -




    Cheers

    Thanks Steve, the GE peg man hasn't been down that lane yet so you pics reveal two extant Fuzing Point sheds which are almost as old as I am!

    Unless I've missed it in the audits (which is highly likely), I cant find what tower type was at Ossington. Anyone help?

    Taken 03-02-12. Not my best by a long way. I was surprised by the amount of moisture in the air for such a cold day, not helped by internal reflections from the perspex, and using a "tit pocket" camera with a dirty lens.

    Does anyone have any information for who I could contact to ask permission for an exporation of High wood and North Wood at Ossington. Any information gratefully received. Thanks, Mick
