RNAS Burscough (HMS Ringtail),Burscough 9-10
Some info of Wikipedia.
Some brief history as its been covered before.

RNAS Burscough (HMS Ringtail) was a former Fleet Air Arm (FAA) naval air station which was situated 1.5 statute miles south-west of the small town of Burscough, Lancashire. The Admiralty acquired 650 acres (2.6 km2) of land in December 1942 and the airfield was built with four runways and several hangars, being commissioned on 1 September 1943.
Four naval hangars still survive in use for non-aviation purposes with the Merseyside Transport Trust. These include 'Pentad' type hangars, and are located on the western edge of the old airfield, most of which has now been turned into an industrial eatate.

This was a permission tour of the hangers with great thanks to the MTTrust lads,who were the perfect hosts giving us an intensive tour.
