Supermarket design remembers former Royal Naval Air Station
A new supermarket is being built on the site of former HMS Ringtail also known as RNAS Burscough.
The Booths store is designed to resemble a WW2 hangar with the new Ringtail Retail Park which has been named in recognition of the history and heritage of HMS Ringtail.
There is a monument, dedicated in 2004, to HMS Ringtail on the proposed site and as part of the development, a memorial garden for the monument is being created in a fully accessible, safer and more prominent position.
Thanks to Fleet Air Arm Association honorary member, Lawrence Critchley for this information. His history of HMS Ringtail can be viewed at this site. From the drop down menu, click on Military Establishments, HMS Ringtail.
