HELP. This image is given as UNLOCATED but does not have a 'setting a new one' link to enable me to place it on the map. It is definitely over Clapham, Bedfordshire.

Taken over Clapham Bedfordshire looking North. The main road to the left is Milton Road (formerly the A6). The minor road with the distinctive 90 degree bend on the right of the image is The Baulk leading towards Twin Wood. Subsequently Twin Wood gave its name to a WW2 airfield which occupied the land to the north of the wood. This image was probably taken on the same flight ( AFL3230 ) as the EPW030064A which was taken over Bromham and shows Clapham in the background. Both images include the distinctive stripes of the adjoining allotment and smallholding fields.
