On site of old runway are some agricultural sheds to which access is not encouraged although a new concrete road is being laid to them (chicken or pig sheds?). Amazing number of mobile homes and porta-cabins being constructed nearby.

RAF Catfoss became a Thor missile site but has long been adapted to other uses. The northern part of the airfield is currently a storage depot whilst the southern end is the location for several very large farm sheds (chicken-rearing?) but seemingly empty at the moment. The location of the two former MOD 'Project Emily' trig pillars, courtesy of Rod Sladen, were (513604.07,448410.61) N and (513583.47,448013.14) S. The main runway is aligned approx N-S with the pillar sites just off the eastern edge. This can be approached from the S via a small detour off a public bridleway (itself diverted along part of the airfield's perimiter track). But theres nothing of interest in the field where the trigs once were. A few fragments of concrete found but could have been anything.
