Blind Lane Birch
This is a shot of Blind lane Birch. The lane was closed from late 1942 until after WW2 as it became one of the two 1400 yard secondary runways of Birch Airfield, the last East Anglian aerodrome to be built by the USAAF in WW2. Blind lane is surfaced in tarmac the concrete in the picture is the end of the 2000 yard main runway. It is interesting to note that Blind Lane and the airfield are not marked on the 1940ís O.S map.
