Sadly neglected - the historic WW2 control tower at Tangmere is in a terrible state.<br />
<br />
A campaign has been launched to restore a historic Second World War airfield control tower which has fallen into an alarming state of disrepair.<br />
<br />
RAF Tangmere in West Sussex was one of Britain's most important airfields during the Battle of Britain and was the base of double amputee flying ace Douglas Bader.<br />
<br />
It closed down in 1970 and most of its buildings were knocked down to create room for houses.<br />
<br />
Sadly, all that remains of the iconic watch tower today is a dilapidated shell covered in graffiti in the middle of an overgrown field.
