As someone who has an interest
in aviation history, I find myself fortunate to be living close to
several World War 2 airfields. As most of them are now closed with
many buildings demolished and many with runways removed, I decided
to make a pictoral record of what they look like at the turn of the
20th century before they decay any further.
In this website you will find
mostly images; images of hangars, watch towers, technical site buildings,
dispersal sites, 'interesting' strips of concrete, airmans married
quarters, known favourite pubs, etc, and anything else that took my
Be sure to bookmark this site
as I will be updating it on a regular basis, and look for links to
other sites that may be of interest. Select any of the airfields listed
to the left and enjoy what views I have of them so far.

Back again after another 1 year absence, only this time I need to remember how I did it all before! Still using Adobe Dream Weaver to 'hand craft' this site, so apologies for any errors - and I know there are a few including broken links!
I won't be redesigning the website, as I have neither the time or skill set. This website was developed 20 years ago, and has mostly worked well enough, so it can stay much as it is.
As always, please contact me if you want to add anything to the site. It is a 'not for profit' website for the benefit of anyone who shares an interest in these airfields for whateer reason...
you were stationed at any of the airfields,and would like to
see specific views not already included, then please contact
me and I'll be happy to try and oblige.
it may be a building of personal interest (eg place of work,
Married Quarters, Mess etc). Let me know and I'll try and include
a photo on the website.
