Alton Barnes

Major

Did you know?

"

This is one place which has seen some rather unusual activities, whether true or not. Certainly an angry flying instructor once somehow managed to fly his Tiger Moth through a Blister hangar during 1944; more recently the immediate surrounding area has become a popular tourist attraction for people interested in the phenomenon of ‘crop circles’.
