WMO03488, Weybourne

52 56 58N 01 07 21E
Altitude 21 metres

Estimated Class 1, passes 6.3% hardstanding and buildings within 100 metres, limit 10%.

UHI, none. East coast station.

Oddity, what is covering the track L shaped near the station?

Briefly RAF Weybourne, anti-aircraft, later site of minor radar, may even be active.

Very close is “Set on the picturesque North Norfolk coast at Weybourne near the seaside town of Sheringham, the Muckleburgh Collection, although not strictly an aviation museum, has plenty to keep the enthusiast occupied.”

Weather generally across the UK was poor with rain and westerly. Weybourne tucked in the north-east coast would be a likely place of highest temperature.
