Spitfire Corner: St Mawgan airfield / Newquay Cornwall

It took these photos back 23rd September 2010 on a trip to Newquay. I’d passed this Spitfire many times before on the way to Newquay, and always meant to stop for a look.

This day I did stop, there was an additional replica Spitfire on a trailer parked outside the house grounds! I’d never seen this one before!
Also a Canberra cockpit snuggled in next to the house, plus many aviation artifacts, including crashed propellers, engine crankshafts, undercarriage etc…

There is a sign saying in order to have a close look, you need to book an appointment – I may endeavour to do this the next time I’m down that way! Here’s the website:

  1. hi could you tell me if the inside of the cockpit is original as i would like to see the position of the compass originally, as i have one but am not sure where it was mounted. Thanks
