    The travelling neighbours may have something to say about that, the matriarch had a real go at us taking pictures, something about a planning application that was turned down. Her two male friends stayed behind her skirt. God she was fierce.

    It survived for about 40 years looking good and in reasonable condition, and then 7 years to being completey vandalised!

    Default Charmy Down Airfield

    I am trying to source an airfield plan for Charmy Down near Bath. Does anyone have one who is willing to share or can you point me in a source direction?

    Thanks in advance.

    The armospheric front and rear covers of this novel depict the control tower. The airfield is mentioned in the text.

    Spent an afternoon wandering about the airfield recently with no problems from anyone.
