     Required Equipment
     Recommended Equipment
    Once home to elements of the RAF and Royal Canadian Airforce

    (According to Wikipedia): "The land was acquired in 1941 and construction took place in first half of 1942. Providing a three runway airfield with extensive dispersal area. Despite the moorland conditions construction was reasonably straight forward, although it did involve the removal of various field boundaries the closure of minor roads and some drainage work.

    The airfield was closed in December 1945 to become a motor racing circuit, in the early 1950s three Formula 1 races were held there including the first success for the Lotus marque."

     Media Coverage
    Recently the focus of police activity due to a free-party which trashed the place. Arrests were made and sound equipment was siezed. Area was cordoned off for a cleanup operation.
