I realise that this has been covered on the forums before, but thought I'd post recent pics. I had to head over Stratford way to get some art framed and thought I'd pay the Airfield a visit. As you can see from these photographs the vegetation has really taken a hold of the Shackleton now, and although they make for some interesting photographs it is perhaps a little sad. But then, nothing lasts forever. I also had a snoop around the sheds behind it, and found one to contain, inexplicably, an office chair, half a hatchback and an unpalatable quantity of bird shit.

Old Shakleton, that's awesome :)
Yep. Shame it's going to be flattened for housing. There used to be a nice collection of planes around that Shackleton years ago. One of the family used to have a Jet Provost based there but it's been in decline for ages. No real infrastructure anymore but the main runway was in use for the drag racing and a busy microlight set up.

Apologies if the link doesn't work. Seems CALA Homes are the developer but there is still some way to go before work starts in earnest. In the meantime I guess everything will continue to gradually decay.
