    I'm sure lots of you will know of the former Coastal Command base at RAF Bircham Newton. The technical site is mostly well-preserved and used/owned by the NCC (National Construction College). However, they've been slowly knocking the odd building down, including the unusual control tower and two of the accommodation blocks. Rumour has it that much of the former site, apart from the hangers, is now due to come down this summer to be replaced by buildings put up by their students.

    Seems a good idea for the college; charge the students to attend the college and then make them re-build it for you! The sad thing is that it's all good 1930s expansion period architecture (some dates to the Great War) and it seems a shame to see it go. If you plan to visit then go at the week-end and best call in at security - they're normally helpful and accommodating, sort of, for people who want to look round the site.

    Go while you can......
