Thorpe Abbotts airfield and control tower
Thorpe Abbotts airfield and control tower
The fully restored control tower is now part of the Thorpe Abbotts Museum. The concrete track on the far side of the control tower once led to the perimeter track, only part of which remains. In the left background can be glimpsed a pile of rubble resulting from the commercial destruction of the former airfield and its reversion to agricultural use.
