UK Snow Day on Webcams

3 Dec 10 2 Comments

Our flight to Gatwick was cancelled so I spent the day peering at webcams all over the UK to see the status of the airfields. It’s great to see how many UK airfields have web cams showing the apron and the runway and even more so when you get to look at snow whilst sitting in sunny Spain. A couple of the cams were dark – either in the midst of a snowstorm or simply broken – but most of them showed blankets of snow across the landscape.

I took screenshots of each of the webcams, so you’ll see what I saw today. If you click through, you’ll get to the airfield site with the live webcam so you can see the current conditions.


Bembridge, Isle of Wight
Cotswold (Kemble)
Aboyne, Aberdeenshire
Glenforsa, Isle of Mull
Headcorn, Kent
Heathrow, London
Hollym, Withernsea
Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
Dunstable, Bedfordshire
Lydd, Kent
Milfield, Northumberland
Portmoak, Scotlandwell
Sherburn, Yorkshire
Shoreham, West Sussex
Shropshire, West Midlands
Sumburgh, Shetland Isles
Wellesbourne, Warwickshire
White Waltham, Berkshire

I’ve been sipping hot chocolate to warm myself just from looking at these webcams. Then I picked up my camera and went out to take photographs of the sun setting over the Spanish coast:

It’s a shame about the missed flight but I think I’ll live.

If you know of other airfield webcams that I’ve missed, leave them in the comments!
