There is article about the sale, along with an advert, in Farmers Weekly. It seems that the vendor has put in a caveat on the sale that he is to be paid 30% of any capital gain in the site if it is later sold for non-agricultural uses - and this constraint lasts for 40 years! Who would buy it for £3.5m with that millstone round your neck?

A few photos from yesterdays visit that hopefully don't duplicate things too much from earlier in the thread. At the owners request no photos of the interior of the officers mess will be posted.

Nice set of photos tigger, who went on the trip in the end?
That JP model is deteriorated since I saw it a couple of years ago, looks like it needs some tlc.
Nearest I got to a group pic, sorry

Found this map of the airfield while going through some old paperwork. It was apparently made up when the base went up for sale in the 70s. It is surprising how much has now gone from the airfield, with very little or no trace at all in some cases to show anything was there.
Just been informed that hangar 5 at Manby is currently on fire! There are 4 crews currently in attendance with more on the way. The hangar looks to be in a bad way with lots of smoke and explosions. This building was used for storage and as a workshop by Winchester Marine. Will keep you posted when I know more.
