TF9532 : End of track

taken 10 years ago, near to Little Snoring, Norfolk, Great Britain

End of track
End of track
Here the concrete track ends but a path leads onwards, skirting a field. It veers off in westerly direction by the woodland seen in mid-distance (in adjacent grid square) and leads to sewage works > LinkExternal link from where another track leads back to the main road > LinkExternal link. This is the old road leading to various accommodation sites associated with RAF Little Snoring when it was an active airfield during WW2.
RAF Little Snoring
RAF Little Snoring was a WW2 RAF heavy bomber base, opened in 1943 and used by 100 Group. After 1945 it was used first for the storage of aircraft and then for maintenance; it became redundant as a military site in the late 1950s. At present, three of the four hangars are used for private aircraft storage and the fourth is used for storage, maintenance and sale of small private aircraft. An adjoining smaller building is used by the flying club. The surrounding land is in agricultural use. The tower is now derelict but the airfield remains open for general aviation and part of the main runway is still in use. See also: LinkExternal link
