Bomb Aimer premises acquired

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Bomb aimer premises acquiredSam Elkington of Hodgson Elkington concluded one of the more unusual acquisitions for clients last year with the acquisition of the former Bomb Aimer’s training premises at Linwood Grange on Martin Moor which was, during the Second World War, known as RAF Metheringham and which was used as a Lancaster bomber base.

The premises pictured in a ‘before’ and ‘after’ perspective were used for the training of bomb aimers by suspending them from the ceiling of this 2-storey building, and having them practice the concept of studying aerial photographs from a great height to assist them in making sure that they dropped the bombs in the right areas.

The former RAF site has, over a number of years, been used for commercial purposes and these premises have been substantially modernised and were being used as a haulage yard and depot with this building being used as the administration offices.

Sam Elkington of Hodgson Elkington was asked to assist in the acquisition of the premises and successfully negotiated the purchase on behalf of clients for the continued use of the premises as a haulage yard.

Sam Elkington commented “This is probably one of the most unusual acquisitions that I have had over the past few years.  Whilst being remote in its location, the former technical site does offer good value commercial space, and at the same time helps preserve part of the County’s heritage.”
