Remains of Lymington Airfield, Snooks Farm
Remains of Lymington Airfield, Snooks Farm
Built in 1943, the airfield was used by American Thunderbolt aircraft in support of the D-day landings. The airfield was returned to farming in 1946. A single blister hangar remains, to the left of which is a white modern building. An Alvis Stalwart 6x6 is parked outside. The presence of a wind sock suggests some continued aeronautical usage.
