    More old pics, first three from 1994 and last two from summer 97:

    Taken 06/94, this is south of the main A/F site looking vaguely west I think as the airfield is off picture to the right.


    Close up of one of the dispersed sites above.


    Airfield site proper, old MQs to the rear.


    Closer view of the tatty hanger. Sorry about the discolouration bottom left. Could it have been my fingers?


    Old bomb dump area. Matches up nicely with the ground shots previous I think.

    I have found two more prints, from 11-06-94. These views should slot in with the ones already posted.

    J Hangar - June 1978





    I remember taking these two images very well as I walked the full length of the runway and I lost my standard lens between here and Kimbolton. The 125cc Susuki is mine - thats how I used to get around back then, doing about 10 airfields or more in a day. Although not on this ocassion as I spent hours trying to find my lens - never found it Great times though!

    T2 hangars at Chelveston 7 November 1955. Note the T2s have their roof sheeting staggard which is typical of the first batch of T2s. Note too, the Quonset hut under construction.

    Unfortunately this image is not mine and I have no idea who took it apart from it was 1974. The CT had gone before I could get to Chelveston.
