A Pit, Strip and Chapel
Lamb Holm, an island linked by the Churchill Barriers in Scapa Flow, Orkney, appears from this photograph to have just three significant man-made features. They are the quarry pit used for the construction of the causeways, a grass airstrip, and the Italian Chapel. A Frenchman was relieved to reach it earlier this week after a two-day flight from Paris in a home-made aircraft. Some details are on the BBC website.
