The former Officers' Mess (east wing) - detail
Exterior staircase on the east wing. For a wider view see > LinkExternal link. This is building no. 50, the former officers’ mess. It dates from the late 1930s and was built in a neo-Georgian style, typical of the care taken over the design of many permanent RAF airfields during that time. Traces of wartime camouflage are still adhering to its walls.

The building housing the officers' mess has stood empty since the airfield was closed in 2006 and most of the land and the buildings on it are currently owned by the North Norfolk County Council. Until the fate of these buildings has been decided they are surrounded by a high security fence and inaccessible to the public. The building is located on the north side of Jaguar Drive, the access road to HMP Bure.
