93 is the H-block currently used by the High School.
94 is the Sgts Mess.
96 was originally the Unwounded Decontamination Block, knocked down years ago. I'm not sure where that number was reused.

Righto, have just found the relevant planning application:

13/01504/FM | Construction of a new two storey elementary school for the US Dept. of Defence Dependents, Grades 1-5, maximum cohort size 402 students (existing capacity), gross area 6,757 sqm, including the demolition of buildings 92, 93 and 95 | USAF Admin RAF Feltwell

Buildings 92 and 93 are the two pre-war H-blocks used by the current High School to the north of SHQ, while Building 95 is the pre-war Airmen's Mess and Cinema.

Thanks for that. Looks like a memory fail on my part.

Sad to think of the Airmen's Mess and cinema going. From memory weren't camp cinemas always called The Astra?

How about this one chaps. From 1918 when a TDS now part of the golf course from when my Grandad was there or thereabouts. Lots of nice little Dh-4's and Pups lined up. Cool looking railway too. Enjoy

Ahh the wonders of modern technology. I posted a similar one of Harling Road yesterday too. How about doing the same to that one :wink:

It is larger than the standard dispersed site PCBs, presumably as it had to handle the additional power requirements for the Surveillance & Inspection Building on top of the regular launch site requirements.

From the 48th FW, Lakenheath:

BREAKING NEWS: It is with heavy hearts that we announce the 2015 4th of July Celebration, set to be held at RAF Feltwell, is cancelled. The decision was made due to the most current, local threat assessments. We make every effort to ensure the safety of our Airmen, their families and our U.K. partners and must make difficult decisions like this when lives are on the line. Both the main event on Saturday, July 4th, as well as the preview party scheduled for Friday, July 3rd, are cancelled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and, whether you're celebrating the 4th of July holiday or simply enjoying the British summer, we wish you a safe and happy weekend.

Anyone have any personal knowledge or information on the 440-L over-the-horizon radar receive site which was located at Feltwell in the early 1970s? I understand there may be one surviving (rather non-descript) building.
