Watch Tower

What is the future of this building? Will it be turned into an enterprise or will it fall foul of the demolition team? I know what I would like to see and its a restored building.

Tower Type:
1936 Chief Flying Instructors Block, 5740/36. This Watch Office was also built on the following airfields: Hullavington, Shawbury, South Cerney and Ternhill.

Paul Francis from the Airfield Research Group has kindly let me let me publish pictures of the Watch Tower from 1982.

Please don’t copy them without the Airfield Research Groups Permission and if you haven’t visited the above site you can while away an hour or so browsing.

For those unaware the Offices attached to the Watch Tower were only demolished recently (just prior to Victory Fields development started).

Here’s a link to the proposed conversion to a House.
