    Steve,
    From www.pastscape.org.uk/hob.aspx?hob_id=1391875
    Chipping Warden airfield, Oxfordshire (sic) SP 495 498. Opened in 1941 and closed in 1946. During World War Two it was used by Royal Air Force Operational Training Units of Bomber Command. By the end of 1944 the airfield had three concrete runways, 30 heavy bomber hard standings, an aircraft hangar type J and four aircraft hangars type T2. (Steve Willis and Barry Holliss 1987 Military airfields in the British Isles 1939-1945).
    The guys over at AiX will know who built them and predisely how long it took!
