Carlton Moor Gliding Club had its roots in the Newcastle Gliding Club founded in 1931, becoming the Newcastle and Teesside Gliding Club when it moved to Carlton Moor in the early 1960s. For reasons unknown flights seem to have ceased at the end of 2008.
I visited the site in late 2011 and although vandalised there was still quite a lot of equipment lying around, I kept it off this public website to avoid it getting pillaged by scrapmen or further trashed by vandals. A friend has visited at the end of 2012 and reports that sadly the whole place is now pretty much ruined and stripped.
Theres a large hanger, presumably for glider storage
And a club hut with a workshop
Also an office with books recording all the flights over the years
Including the final flight by G Terry and D Heslop on 5th October 2008.
There was also a seperate accomodation hut decorated much in the style of a 1970s semi.
UPDATE : As of April 2013 the buildings have been demolished and all traces removed.
