taken 11 years ago, near to Tarrant Rushton, Dorset, Great Britain

Bales lining runway - Tarrant Rushton airfield
Bales lining runway - Tarrant Rushton airfield
This is on the site of Tarrant Rushton airfield, a base used in WWII and now returned to farming. Please see other photos for this area. Runways, etc are still quite clearly marked on the maps.
If you look carefully, you can see that part of the runway has been resurfaced in asphalt (to the left) and the bales are laid on the original concrete runway which was clearly wider than the modern road.
