Looking roughly to the East from the roof of the single storey Batty's building. I think that the large area of demolition must be where the old Peak hotel had been. Any suggestions what the other buildings were? I believe that Martin Booth described how he and his parents lived in one of the three modern Government apartment blocks on the left. (Andrew S)
The image below, copied from my own gallery '1957-8 Andrew Suddaby's photographs', which would really be better shown beneath several of Peter's other photographs, shows all the buildings associated with the R.A.F. Batty's outpost as they were in 1958 or a bit later.. It should help to show the relative positions of the various close-ups that Peter took from the roof of the original R.A.F. building, which was probably the single storey right hand part of the final building on Ken's photograph. Peter was there just a year or two before Ken,and the perimeter fence shown on some of Peter's photographs did not enclose the trangle of land where the two small buildngs (including the dark roofed Victorian one) and old circular signal mast platform are.
