    Default RAF Saltby


    visited with my dad on a chilling morning, he had done an archielogical dig here in the mid 80's so wanted to pop back, we buped into a local while getting out the car had a long chat with him and mentioned the buildings he didnt seem to like talking about them and claimed his son farmed the land

    i was made to carry the spotlamp in a tesco's bag so we didnt look like poachers!

    Hi Mr Sam
    Enjoyed seeing your pics of the blast shelter and Stanton shelter...good to see them so intact. :) Where there any other airfield buildings remaining, and if so do you have any pics of them? Be nice to see them if you do.

    Cheers :)

    That tower is a water tower which would originally have been located at one end of a domestic ablutions block (shower/toilet block).

    Odd that just the one has been left standing, without the rest of the building!
