NT1265 : Kirknewton Airfield

taken 13 years ago, near to Kirknewton, West Lothian, Great Britain

Kirknewton Airfield.
Kirknewton Airfield.
Map says it's disused, but it's not. Military helicopter against a backdrop of Kaimes Hill. An old runway is gradually disappearing beneath the weeds. Only when returning to Balerno did I see the War Office notices.

The airfield is also used by a gliding club and is coveted by developers as it's not green belt designated.
