Former RAF Culmhead - Taunton, Somerset

Our Heritage Team was responsible for producing a detailed Conservation Management Plan (CMP) for the Spitfire Pens and Control Tower of the former RAF Culmhead Spitfire Squadron Airbase.  The CMP comprised a detailed documentary history of the site, produced through original archival research and a structural survey of the identified buildings.  The CMP developed a suite of policies which were to be applied to the future management of the property and which were to be adopted by a Management Panel.  The CMP also identified opportunities for volunteer involvement in the conservation of the monument which would result in significant heritage conservation capacity building in the local area. The CMP was developed with and approved by English Heritage and is being implemented by the Blackdowns AONB.
