You can tell a builder from an archaeologist by the size of his trowel. Mine is a small one!

The first two pics are the Type 8/84 Barrack Block (H Block of Stevo fame) that had one wing destroyed during the B of B. As you can see the rest of the building was OK and the building did exactly what it was designed to do. As I have said before on here, it is an excellent design for passive defence. Note the kids on the roof!!

Pics 3 and 5 are the Type C Home Defence Scheme Barrack Block of 1922 but probably built around 1925.

Pic 5 is the Sergeants' Mess - another classic design.

All the above destroyed by the the local authority in one of their purges in 1984 at North Weald (they aquired the site from the MOD). Nil respect for the Nation's Heritage.

Picture No 2 is not as old as you think. There's a Health & Safety Inspector standing on the roof ridge supervising! :D
