A stark reminder II

By Arvorphoto    
Another from the bleak Davidstow Moor and a visit to the old RAF watch/air traffic control tower.
Converted to mono to enhance the stark contrast between the harsh straight lines of the old tower against the bleak rolling countryside.
The RAF base at Davidstow only had a very short life, built during WWII in 1942 and closed in 1945.
It briefly became a motor racing circuit, known as Davidstow Circuit and in the early 1950s three Formula One races were held there (the Cornwall MRC Formula 1 Races) including the first success for the Lotus marque.
