This is dispersal site No. 1 for RAF Hunsdon, Herts. This site lies off St Margaret’s road and contains the dental unit (22), the Sergeants Mess (27), two water tanks (8 & 9), the cinema (29), dining hall and cookhouse (21), plus ten blast shelters. The sewerage works are still in place and working for the village of Hunsdon to this day. They are the only buildings left on the site. A large house now occupies the site where the Sergeants mess once was.

The Grid Reference is TL 413 134.

Thanks Class31, I had noticed this - always seems a good idea to check what else was 'snapped' on same day. I'm still puzzling over this one and the related images.

Hi ewnmcg Thanks for your kind comment. I find that the more information that I can glean the more likely it is to achieve a result. In this case I have studied the area covered by the Ordnance Survey map 165 for Aylesbury & Leighton Buzzard but I can't locate the photos so far. I wish you luck with this one and all the rest.
