    dont really know which room to post this in and i wont be to dissapointed if it ends up in the recycle bin

    it was a bustling RAF station back in WW2 and was one of the places where the Horsa gliders took off for Normandy all the huts were hidden in the woods as the germans new about the base and planned to bomb it, anyway on the site there is also pre-historic earthworks for King Lud, my dad did a survey of the earthworks back in the early 1980's where he was a volonteer archeologist for the museams

    anyways all thats left is a load of concrete pads where buildings once stood but there are some remarkbly clean air raid bunkers, being out in the sticks and hidden in some woods its away from the chav's :)
