Just noticed there is a bit of 'concrete' still extant at the ex Cardiff Balloon Centre, July 1939 to December 1943

Location

The base of the large 100 by 200 ft Fabric Shop / MT Shop and, to its southeast, the 50 x 100 ft MT shed can be seen.

The airmen's dining room was bottom left

The rest is beneath Ely Leisure Centre

Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:.
