Santa Pod Raceway (uk)

Recommended Posts

Is anyone out there in the UK familiar with the Santa Pod Raceway which is located on the site of the old USAAF Air Base at Podington? Just curious what if any structures remain of the base as my late father served there in 1944.

Hi Tom, although not familiar with the Milton Keynes area myself I did find this :)

but from the look of it I'd say very little remains of the airbase.

Thanks Nikki,

I actually found that website before posting here. From what I could tell from another website the old control tower is now someone's home. Fixed up it looks very nice. I was hoping someone lives in the area and could visit sometime. I assume there may be some memorial type markers on the property which make reference to the time it served as an air base. Thanks again for your reply.

Tom
