Although a proxy lies at entrance to chicken farm. 14.4Mw wind farm adjacent, humming away nicely in light breeze.

Took a walk all around the site, the former RAF North Pickenham. Matthews' turkey farm sheds all remain lining the old runways, but none are in use, a little eerie walking down the old runway with sheds stretching away 3/4 mile. Holocaust Memorial Day and my thoughts were that if the turkey gains ascendancy this is where they will come to remember! Walked over the site of this pillar at the top end of the N-S runway but nothing above ground remains at the site, unlikely this pair of the pillars will be found. Site security firm operates from here, saw the van but no bods.

No sign of any remains, there is a possibility these may turn up in a yard somewhere. there is a small "dummy" pillar next to the gate, got me excited for a short while, alas it is just a lump of concrete.

One of a pair of Project Emily trigs from the 1950s. The South pillar was at TF 84947 06845. No info available on FB numbers. The main runways are now covered by large turkey rearing sheds. The N trig site is by E edge of runway at its N end, just outside one of the sheds. The S trig site is also E side of the runway, 10m into arable field, near the sheds. No trace found of either pillar. At least one taxiway is also intact, and there are a few old huts, but no sign of the mass concrete Thor missile bases; the trigs presumably went when the site was cleared. Non-poultry part of the site is now arable; also an 8-generator wind farm.
