This was a visit i did on my way back from the nuba site - was told about this place about a year ago and wanted to strike it off my list as i have been told its due to be stricken off the face of the earth next year to make way for a massive housing estate.
Met a lovley guy called mark who told me a mass of stories about the the place and what its impending future was(is) - if your going to visit do it soon.
The was apparently a old wessex helicopter here but some cheeky sod came in the middle of a the night with a flat bed lorry and nicked it lol - the cheek of some people.
Really relaxed explore - lots of nice people about as the was a mighty bulldog bash the weekend i visited(drag racing)
The overall impression i got from this place was sadness due to the place being flattened next year - many people said about the happy times they had here and how it is pretty much irreplacable to the community, met so many nice folks on this day - that alone was worth the visit.

Some pictures i took on the day:

This is still here. But. There are only 3 planes and all the outbuildings / caravans. And a rather nasty Bouncer.
