On the hill at Halesland is written FLY 621

For many years a rocky outcrop next to Halesland has had the letters FLY 621 written in stone. Many have tried to change the numbers, but 621 has always changed them back. This bank holiday weekend some of our junior staff were taken on a history trip. First stop was Weston Airfield to see the remains of the the canvas hanger and nissan huts. Halesland, now home of Mendip Gliding Club, was next and a chance to see the airfield still in use today, and whilst there give the stones a make over.
