Being born and brought-up in the UK city of Sheffield, and maintaining an active interest in aviation and local history throughout my life, I was surprised to discover a small airfield on the outskirts of the city that I’d never heard of before.

But what’s interesting is the older blister hangar, which looks similar to pre-fab wartime constructions that housed fighter aircraft such as Spitfires and Hurricanes. Nearby are what look like old Nissen huts.
Was Apperknowle airfield ever a small miliary base, or were these buildings simply brought to the site after falling into disuse elsewhere? If you have any further information, please leave a comment below.
