I can not believe its been a year from the last update on this thread, sorry!

Research on the history of the aerodrome is still ticking on however I have also been pulled into researching the whole Special Operations Executive (SOE) operation in WWII which has a little slowed up the aerodrome side.

I will do a follow up on the aerodrome soon.

I should also let everyone know that I instigated establishing a Barton & District History Group... the first meeting is to be held in the village hall on the 31st May.

Everyone is welcome and I hope we can establish several long term project which will include the villages aerodrome.
