Many thanks to Shortstown resident Derek Jones who has identified some of the buildings in Shortstown shown here.
1. The large group of prefab buildings to the right of the houses in Shortstown were the admin, messing and accommodation blocks for the RTCC (Residential and Training Conference Centre) for the then Dept of the Environment (Property Services Agency).*
2. The large house immediately adjacent to these buildings opposite what looks like a car park was the residence of the Station Commander. All of these buildings have since been demolished and replaced by additional houses.
3. Moving extreme left back into the village below the Shorts Building is a large white roofed property which was the RAW Social Club (now a large shop). Derek has identified the long white buildings next to this as the old NAAFI shop - again since demolished.
* If you worked in any of these buildings please get in touch.
Many thanks Derek!
If you can identify other buildings across the road on the Station again please make contact.
