Nice! and from a very unusual location! looks like they were spot on with their Nav, I don't think any signs of the old airfield remain?

Well done for getting the shots. :clap: I went to Beccles as their route pushed them through there, but no sign :sad: .I used to go to the BT exchange unit at Matlaske(in another life) and your trip proved a better idea going there.. :smile:
