WMO03740, Lyneham (RAF Lyneham)

51 30 11N 01 59 32W  (51.50313207002159,-1.992399086381173)
Altitude 156 metres

Estimated Class 2. [update, enclosure hardstanding, paving, not been examined yet, might degrade Class, see Llanbedr articles ]

UHI, local airbase, distance, none.

Sadly this useful transport base is being disbanded and means the site will be turned to other uses, probably urbanise rapidly and the met site will change/move.

I know the area and this is one of the strange locations where a hole in cloud over the base is not unusual. About ground topology.

It is incidentally a few hundred metres from New Zealand.

Think I’ve flipped don’t y’a, nice malt tho’
