Did you know?

The church at nearby Kirk Andreas retains an immediately transparent truncated appearance due to the tower having to be shortened in height to allow Spitfires to land more safely. The dismantled stones were stored in a nearby field and intended to be restored in peacetime but the local populace then decided not to bother, and the material was used for other building duties. A memorial window dedicated to No 11 Air Gunnery School can be found inside the church."
