BEFORE

The Control Tower before restoration began

AFTER

When the group began work on the control tower there were no windows or doors, the bay window was about to collapse, the internal walls had been white washed and it was knee deep in cow muck!

Fast forward to present day and the Control Tower building is now restored to its 1940’s condition and has been setup inside as it was during the war years. It has taken a lot of hard work from our voluntary team over a period of 10 years to get the control tower into its present condition.

Walls

The whitewash was painstakingly chipped and scrapped off by hand to avoid damage. Small shards of paint were found which allowed us to colour match the original paint scheme.

Layout

First hand accounts from personnel who served on the airfield during the war have allowed us to recreate the internal layout of the control tower as it would have been.

The information on our flight boards is from just on day, the 23rd October 1941.
