An acquainance of mine who lived in a house at the bottom of the picture was in the ATC (Air Training Corps) during the war, and used to fly whilst still a cadet as lookout/engineer/second pilot/dogsbody in Wellingtons and Stirlings and other twin/four engined aircraft from there during the war. As for Stirlings I was a bit sceptical but he was quite adamant and had a photo to prove it!

I believe it is also the longest 'serving' RLG in RAF service - continuous since 1941 and always as a training field.
