Hi Richard, have you ever explored Google earth  historical (there is a icon in the top tool bar) imagery if not try it go to Bawdsey and slide back to 1945 you will get a Black and White aerial Photo and you should see just North of the manner the shadows of the chain home towers.

Hi Alfie

Thanks for that pointer.  I never realised that the historical imagery was available.

Mike

Alfie,

Thanks - I got to the historical imagery via the 'view' button then set the slider to 1945. Very interesting to see the shadow of the CH TX towers at Bawdsey. There is also some imagery of Inverness showing the old Longman airfield - now an industrial site. This shot also shows the wartime emergency hospital and the site of the WW2 filter room and RAuxAF FC unit HQ.
