Thurleigh Airfield, Bedford 18945_22

Bedford Airfield, Bedfordshire. Thurleigh Airbase hosted the 8th US Airforce during the Second World War and was known as station 111. Shortly after the War, Thurleigh was developed as a testing facility (and became known as the Royal Aerospace Establishment Bedford) that included wind tunnels and a proposed five mile long runway (never completed). The base, of which this turning apron is part, was closed in 1993. Photographed in September 2000

Milton Keynes 18693_02

Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. One of the key features of Milton Keynes urban layout is the distinctive grid pattern of its main transport routes. With main routes intersecting approximately every one kilometre, the grid pattern allowed planners to move away from congestion associated with traditional radial town plans. Initially roads were given numbers or letters which signified vertical (north-south) or horizontal (east-west) routes. All have since been named. Photographed in February 2000
