    I wonder what happened to the sign? It wasn't something we saw 3 weeks agao when we were there, unless we missed it!

    Is Perranpporth in the Lincolnshire Airfield Trail then
    The format of the sign is very similar.

    I took this photograph whilst on a weeks holiday in and around that area in 2004. The sign looks a bit worn so maybe they are only just re-placing it ? Also the prop' memorial was being re-furbished at that time, though i did get a photograph of what there was on show then.

    Just been on holiday at Perranporth. A friend took me in to the tower and I saw the signs had just been refurbished. Will get some photos up soon.

    Meant to upload these last year but never got round to it.

    Photo 1 Guardhouse at rear entrance to airfield on road to Perranporth village.

    2. Control Tower.

    3/4/5. Blast pen behind the tower.

    Have been extolling the virtues of the site to an old mate (ex Chivenorite - pre 1974 and Mawganite) who lives locally in the hope that he will join the forum and post his photos of Perranporth and Mawgan.

    Nice photo Jim, I had a brief visit there last year but would love to head back down to Cornwall. Not a bad part of the world to be!

    We had a nice walk around a few years ago, it was a bit blustery, the wind off the sea. http://www.atlantikwall.co.uk/atlant...tml/page01.htm
