    Hi Simon,

    Your website suggests that very little is left on the airfield itself, but the Thor pads here seem to be in pretty good shape. Is there any access?

    Also wondered what this was?

    Nope, they're on private farmland and there's poultry sheds located on them so access is a strict no-no.

    Another visit, this time June 97.

    I was going to do it in one shot, then I saw the blister, so made it two.

    Excellent ariel shots as always. Is that Blister hanger an original you think?

    I think so, Its in the kind of place you'd expect to put one. Anyone got a plan to confirm?

    Site plan? No, not yet but it's on the list. Simon's photos pretty much sum up the place and if you follow the link to my own web site (below), it tells pretty much the same story. Not very much left at all. When NJR and self visited "properly" the first time, it was when bird flu was all the rage and there's a very active poultry (or something) farm on site between the gate and the Thor pads. Although we had a 'phone number, we didn't bother going any further on that visit.
