SX1484 : Old Runway, Davidstow Forest, Cornwall

taken 12 years ago, near to Trewassa, Cornwall, Great Britain

Old Runway, Davidstow Forest, Cornwall.
Old Runway, Davidstow Forest, Cornwall.
Davidstow Forest occupies the site that was once the airfield of RAF Davidstow Moor. This airfield was active from 1942 - December 1945. The dense coniferous planting gives way to the concrete remains at various points. Here we see the remains of a SW-NE runway. The public road (where the photo was taken) runs along the route of the old airfield perimeter road.
