Hello People, This is my first post so please be gentle. I thought I would share a few pictures of a site that is soon to be no more. It is of the little known South Marston airfield to the east side of Swindon. The airfield during the second World War produced Short Stirling Bombers, The Super Marine Spitfire and a host of other aircraft. The section I explored is of the old paint shop where they used to paint the aircraft. In recent years it was taken over by Crown Timber and now sits empty. Most of the old airfield is now home to Honda, but parts of the airfield are still very much evident today. Very soon property developers will pull it down to make way for new housing. I am certainly not a photographer and these pictures were taken on my phone so please excuse the poor quality (Sorry the pictures are dotted all over the place, I have poor internet connection here at work and just finding my feet on how this works).
Thanks for looking

Gavin

Some really artistic shots in there dude, I love the composition of 5, 11 and 12! Great first report and what looks like a good explore too! Is there a repeat in there on the shot of the stairs though?
