    someone commented on footprints on runways, well here is one of North Withams



    and numbered concrete slabs on the number 2 runway



    Some kind soul had also been clearing the accumulated muck at the side of the runways, I am guessing to allow the standing water to dissapate for the rally sections they run there.

    It has uncovered various drain, inspection covers and light fittings

    To be honest i'm not sure it would be possible to get a matching present day shot from that section of peri track now due to the mass of trees around there. I'll have a look for you as i'm popping back up there very soon.

    Looks like they've aready made a start -


    It was 'quite bracing' to say the least this afternoon at Witham but as enjoyable as ever.
    Heres a few more snaps -


    This time of the year is defitnetly the best time for a decent view of the old signal square -

    Re picture above - you are standing about 95 feet from the end of the main runway, and about 25 feet off the centre line.
    In front of you is one of the two threshold contact light fittings. See here

    Thanks for the link Carnaby.
    It was taken on the spot where the main runway crosses the no.3 subsidiary runway.

    Duh - in which case I am totally wrong with my educated guess at the location. That's what happens when one posts under the influence of alcohol .
