raf upwood | the usaf have left the building

Next to this hanger, and facing the runway, were two Nissen huts, arranged parallel to each other. I was looking for the Chapel, as it was marked on maps as being in this general area, and decided to have a look at this temporary buildings first.

Given that the rest of the site was built of brick and concrete, I assumed that these Nissen huts dated from the site when it was a First World War aerodrome.
