Derelict Airfield Building
Derelict Airfield Building
This building has been derelict since the nearby airfield ceased its defence role in the Second World War. Outside, it doesn't look too remarkable but inside, there are still reminders of its WW2 use. On one of the walls (seen in the picture through the window) there's a painted area, where planes coming in and out of the airfield were recorded. Some of the pilot's names could still be faintly read chalked on the wall. In the back of the building there was an air raid bunker.
