    Popped in here on the way back from Bristol. Previous pictures and reports never mentioned the size of this site, or its completeness. Yes it's wrecked, but appears everything is here. There's three hangars, a medical centre, barracks, officers and sergeants mess, fire station and some other stuff I didn't recognise. Theres a bit of taxiway outside but it's not clear where the runway and control tower was from the ground.

    Definately worth popping in if your in the area.

    Seems like they did allsorts here...

    ...so it's a training school for sure, for pilots, observers, navigators, until 1940. After that?
