A large number of strong magnetic anomalies, clearly associated with the activities of the former airfield, were recorded during a magnetometry survey, conducted at the southern edge of the site in February 2014. The anomalies include the remains of former land drains and services, an aircraft dispersal point, and other miscellaneous ferrous materials. {6}
