SJ9926 : Main entrance to Hixon Industrial Estate, Hixon, Staffordshire

taken 11 years ago, near to Hixon, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Main entrance to Hixon Industrial Estate, Hixon, Staffordshire.
Main entrance to Hixon Industrial Estate, Hixon, Staffordshire.
The main entrance is right in the south-eastern corner of the grid square. The industrial estate is located on the former wartime RAF bomber airfield, that can be found just to the north-west of Hixon village. This entrance has a barrier pole and is manned by a security guard; however, this is still not quite the level of security that there would have been here during the War! This was possibly the main entrance to the RAF station, judging by the avenue of trees either side of the road that bends round to the left and the large white pre-fabricated concrete building, also on the left (the corner of which is just visible); this appears to be the former guardroom.
