RNAS Inskip or as it was otherwise known HMS Nightjar is a former Fleet Air Arm airfield near the village of Inskip, Lancashire, England. The site today is still owned by the Royal Navy and is now home to DCSA Radio Inskip, a tri-service communication centre. Most of the communications that happen there are low frequency radio communications to submarines. The current station has four 600 feet high aerials and several other smaller aerials. Also situated on the site is the Sea Cadet Training Centre Inskip, a national training centre to the Sea Cadet Corps. Update, February 2010. SCTC Inskip closed on 31 Jan 2010, bringing to an end 68 years of uniformed presence in Inskip.
The runway was demolished in the 1970s. The concrete from it was used to build the M55 motorway, from which the aerials can be clearly seen. Today only the smaller taxiways exist as proof of the airfield's former existence.
I didnt get a whole lot of images as I go hoisted off by Farmers. But thought id share. I managed to talk my way out of it as i used to go to Nursery on this site and live on the North side around 1986.
