    The most complete example of a pre-1919 flying field with associated hangars and workshops in the UK.

    Portway, the Roman road coming from the northeast (Silchester). Around 2007 I excavated a section through the Roman road, within land owned by Old Sarum Airfield. You can still see the backfilled evaluation trenches in the Google Maps aerial view (2013). The road was mostly ploughed out, the base of the metalling present and shallow remnants of roadside ditches.

    A multivallate Iron Age hillfort, oval in plan, measuring 580 metres east-west by 460 metres north-south. The earthworks are well preserved and comprise two banks and a medial ditch with two entrances, one on the eastern side which is approached by a causeway and one on the west side which is thought to be medieval in origin.

    That's where I fly from. Have hundreds of images since 2006. We took off in deep snow in 2009 - here's an image.

    @Voyeur - that's a great image, and I bet on such a snowy day you were glad of an enclosed cockpit!

    While working for Wessex Archaeology several years ago, I excavated two sections through the Roman road between Silchester and Old Sarum, just beyond the roundabout on The Protway (top centre of this photo). Part of an evaluation (the backfilled trenches of which are still visible on the Google maps aerial view), we identified the remnants of the road makeup which had survived ploughing and a shallow depth of the roadside ditches.

    Another photograph discussed at the get together in Chippenham: stunning Old Sarum.

    Old Sarum airfield is visible in the top right background. Opened in 1917 it was one of the first UK airfields. I believe the hangars visible in the image are still standing as listed buildings.
