Extremely interesting site given its history and a very pleasant walk on the runways !

I absolutely love this place. The runways are eerily beautiful and the control tower, tucked behind the right runway, is a piece of history slowly decaying. A wonderful walk, around 5-6km through beautiful woodland. So lucky to have places like this on our doorstep.

Love going there to bycycle down the runways. Went there today with daughter and granchildren. Paid homage to the Control Tower. Sureal to realise it was all built before any of us were born.

Saw Bee Orchids for the first time in the wood today alongside one of the runways. Beautiful.
