    Default North witham & woodhall - exploring info request

    Can anyone tell me where the control tower is at North Witham, near Grantham and also if woodhall spa can be xplored?
    Im visiting the area next week. NW is Forestry Commission recreation area evidently. But is Woodhall privately owned and is it accessible?

    thanks for any info!
    apparently NW was base for 82nd airborne pathfinders.

    Hi All

    Spent a couple of hours at this fantastic old airfield yesterday. I have seen it from the air a few time's and explored it using google earth but have never made the time to stop while passing on the A1. It was great to walk round a corner and see an almost full runway. Did not know the control tower was still there so missed that, but had a great time exploring the runways and peri tracks. It is a shame they took up so many of the dispersal areas. For those of you that like the old buildings there's not much to see but a lot of runways and thinned taxi ways exist. Will return on my push bike to explore further. Was going to put some pictures up but they would be similar to those already on here. Have ordered a copy of the book by Martyn Chorlton called "Paths In The Wood". Its well worth a visit.

    If only I knew yesterday, I drove past North Witham!

    I believe that site was a WAAF site but the only RSP I have is the airfield site.

    The two huts was No14 which was Airmens Huts.

    This was suppose to be a WAAF site but the plans say otherwise.
