The set of images below track the developmet of the Broken Bank flying field fom1995 through to 2003. The original site is built up from landfill.
Waste paper ws used as a 'top soil' for new seed. As of 2010, the grass is well established and many birds (in partcular Skylarks) now share the site wih us!


Image below was taken back around 1995 using a single shot 35mm camera on the side of my Yamamoto. This shows the 'hut' in it's 'old' position before
relocation to the new plot slightly further out on the plot.

Above: The site as it was as of the 5th February 2003. The site has not changed much since (circa 2008). The Cross strip may now be reduced and the original central bulge may be restored in 2009. This is to allow cross field take off's and landings. The lower part ofthe cross stip is difficult to maintain and is not well liked or used.
