Type and Period (1)

  • BOMBING RANGE (Modern - 1939 AD? to 1945 AD?)


WWII bombing range adjacent to Three Parks Wood. May not have been in use for very long due to proximity of RAF bases at Silverstone and Turweston. At least one bombing quadrant tower (see :01) still in existence and bombing target can be seen as a soilmark in nearby field on 1980's APs (see :02) (B1).
