27th November 2019 I went with my brother and a friend to Long Marston Airfield near Stratford Upon Avon, a RAF base that was in use between 1941 and 1954. A great explore since it has been my first one in a while. Easy to get in to at the entrance there was a metal fence we walked around then a little wooden fence you can simply climb over. We were there for around 45 minutes until the owner of the land spotted us and told us to leave although we wouldn't have been caught if my friend didn't drop his phone in an engine bay of some kind. They are supposedly going to build houses on the land and demolish the airstrips and planes which will be a shame :'(

It's being at Long Marston for 30 years. So there has being ample opportunity for someone to save it.
Agreed, I believe it's just the physical size and extent of corrosion on the airframe which has totalled its chances, still, I hope I'm wrong, or atleast maybe even parts can go into an existing airframe before its scrapped.

After the Long Marsdon aviation museum/collection had sadly closed its doors, the Shackleton MR3, serial number WR985, was among a group of larger airframes that were not relocated

But parts of the Long Marsdon 'Shak' have been used on other UK restorations:
