https://www.balliol.ox.ac.uk is the web page for Balliol College and dose carry reference to RAF Greatworth. in 1945. The other owners possibly sold their land earlier as RAF Greatworth operated through the war as Tx's to Bletchley Park, who have confirmed this to me. That's very useful Tony, you confirmed that there were several owners of the land (7). Although I knew Balliol College documented a land sale, it didn't tell that it was the owner of the land being sold, or that other lands had also been sold to the Air Ministry.
52 grand was serious dosh in '48, I wonder how much the first installation cost in '39?

Good to hear from you Tony.

A trip to Kew tells me that 90 Group had approval to erect masts at Greatworth 20/4/1945 There were 7 owners of fields they required approx 130 acres, The biggest land owner was Ballico College Oxford
This was finished in 1948 and cost 52,000. in 1953 new aerials cost 54000. 1954 rebuilt over nisson huts .
