Bomb Stores Site

Dunsfold Bomb Stores Plan

The Bomb Stores Site has two access roads with seven concrete hard standings in between and earth banks separating each hard standings or bays. These bays were used to store the bombs which were placed on wooden frames. The earth banks that separated each bay gave a degree of isolation should there be an accident and these are still visible.

  1. On the Record Site Plan a section of which is shown here of the Bomb Store what is the Air Ministry Drawing Number and Function of Building 148?

  2. Peter we have some more information and drawings of those structures. I will dig them out and try and get them uploaded asap.
