    Default R.A.F Lympne - June 2019

    This was the last of exploring i did yesterday - the place is very overgrown and we couldn't find the battle HQ due to rapeseeds being grown and no cut down yet




    History : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Lympne

    RAF Lympne /ˈlɪm/ was a Royal Air Force station used during the First and Second World Wars. It opened in 1916 by the Royal Flying Corps as an acceptance point for aircraft being delivered to, and returned from, France. It was later designated as a First Class Landing Ground. In 1919, the airfield was turned over to civil use as Lympne Airport, serving until 1939 when it was requisitioned by the Fleet Air Arm as HMS Buzzard, later being renamed HMS Daedalus II.

    Nice shots but as you mentioned very overgrown.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
