    Default Meir

    Hi all,

    I’m looking for some good photo’s of Meir Aerodrome in Stoke-on-Trent which closed in August 1973. I live very close to it, or where is used to be I should say, and I’ve located its exact position but nothing remains of it. I’ve read Roger Lycett-Smith’s excellent book on it (Airfield Focus No.34) but the photo’s of it are very limited. Does anyone have photo’s of this long forgotten aerodrome?

    Regards, ..........

    Default Meir

    Anyone got any images, maps etc for Meir? It's to go with a received article for AR that is just text.

    Cheers

    I think there is an Airfield Focus for Meir. It might be worth contacting Graham Simmons to se if you can use something form the relevant volume.

    We are now preparing this article so just another request for images (then and or now) of this airfield. If anyone has the Airfield Review mentioned and can scan and mail the piece to me it would be helpful,

    Ive only ever found 2 or 3 very small pic's on the net, a nice B+W aerial photo from the 50s is in existence, I lost the pic's I had when my PC crashed but will see if I can find them again. Can you remember the air raid shelter at the top end behind Sandon Road, or the large hangar opposite Creda House ?
