    Tower still there as at 15.06.2009.

    There's a camping/caravan site on the site of the museum.....would be a good base for exploration of Lincolnshire Airfields. Anybody got more information on this?............(Might be a long walk to the nearest Pub!)

    All,
    I found at least two of these things at Metheringham while wandering around the site in April. Any idea what it is?



    They were both near aircraft dispersals, basically square buildings in shape, with a blast wall in front of the doorway. Now very much overgrown of course.

    Looks like an M&E Plinth.

    No ghosts, but the 'thump-bump' of tyres as you drive along the runway sets the imagination working.

    The M&E plinth is still extant, and thanks to this Forum for the explanation of what it is !
