Notes about this historic site

They were built in dispersed locations to the east of the airfield, consisting of dining facilities, stores, messes, bathhouses, ablutions, sick quarters, a decontamination centre, offices and other ancillary facilities. RAF personnel used the buildings during WW2 but they were subsequently used for refugee and army accomadation. Polish refugees occupied the buildings until the early 1980s, during which period various alterations were carried out to the buildings.
