Definitely taken facing south. This distinctive building is clearly visible on Google Earth on Blanche Ln.

I'll suggest that these might be lead in lights to a runway.

I'd be inclined to agree except that lead-in lights are normally one line, not two, (set on centre line of runway). I would also expect wider roads that close to an airport runway.

We still have no idea what these regular markings are.

The last time I saw something like this, they were the tops of cut tree trunks in a hedge line. I suggest you take a look at the fourth epoch pre-WWII 1:2500 mapping!

Vertical photo - unusual, most are oblique. I think this could be a prison or a hospital. Note the covered (walled?) links between buildings. More likely a prison, even in 1947 there was a need for parking space.

I think this is definitely a hospital. Compare the huts on the left with the EMS huts on EAW002516 - there are several identical features.
