People new to the area today would probably not even be aware that there was ever an RAF base here. The Shorts Building above now beautifully restored and the two huge sheds are the only reminders of the past. New apartments and houses now stand on the old buildings that have housed thousands of young men over the years.
Below is a new map of Shortstown which shows the new roads that have sprung up in the last four years. Thanks must go to Allen Campbell a former resident of Shortstown who put this map together.
At present almost all of the new roads have been named after people connected to the airship era but it is hoped any future roads will carry RAF related names.
