The view is of the loading platform and retaining wall of the area set aside to the north of the airfield where bombs were fused, and tailfins fitted preparatory to loading onto tractor towed bomb trolleys. Opposite is a high earth bank (from where the photo was taken) as blast containment in the event of an explosion. The main tracks in the vicinity are the remains of the long and gently curving roadways used by the bomb trains transporting their deadly cargoes to the aircraft.
