Some aerials taken May 2009

General view of RAF Ingham. Note the road curving away to the left. This is the A15 which was diverted to allow for the extension of RAF Scamptons runway, which is just visible to the right.

PNK - the house was always there, it was used as a Mess. The Control Tower still stands and is in the garden!

I was suprised at how much still stands at Ingham. A great place to have a lil' explore. Heres a few pics from my visit -


The landowner of the tower area of the airfield was very freindly and was explaining to me how he was faced with a choice of either demolishing the building or renovating it....He made the right choice!!!!! Here it is with the work already started on it -

A re-visit is defitnetly planned as theres so many airfields in that area. There just wasn't enough daylight for them all!!

I wonder if the landowner knows what happened to this relic, seen at Ingham in Aug 1960? It had gone by the mid-1960s. It has been discussed on the FlyPast Forum, narrowed down to a handful of RAF LIbs but never seems to have been positively identified.

We didn't have time to re-visit the control tower this time as we wanted to get to Hemswell and Wickenby but we did notice that the renovation job looked pretty much completed as we drove past.

Cheers,
Steve

Now i have several photo taken at Ingham of a defensive position that was adjacent to the A15. I did measure the thing up at the time. (Wonder if its still there)?

I shall 'dig' them out but its description is roughly ...

A square brick, approx. 8' x 10', IIRC; surface level, earth banked emplacement that had within, a circular mount for a gun and also there were storage area within the square presumably to store ammo, of brick construction but very low in profile and also having a re-inforced concrete 'roof' to the storage area on the inner edges ...

Ring any bells with anybody else ??

This sounds like a Spigot Mortar Emplacement. Is the mount a concrete cylinder with a steel pintle in the top? I'd love to see the pics.

It's not a spigot mortar. It looks more like a light anti-aircraft gun pit. it may have had a motley mount attached to the pedestal, were there any signs of bolt holes in the top of it?

The ring of bolts can be seen around the edge of the plinth, somewhat larger than a Motley mount.
I'm sure I've seen a 20mm Oerlikon S LAA mounting that would match up though.

All the best,
PB
