Officially known as Lashenden Airfield, now private, this airfield was built on farmland during WWII in 1943 as a prototype advanced landing ground to be constructed on the continent after D-Day. Returned to farming duties after the war, the grass landing strip was used by light aircraft in the 1960s and still is today.
On site, you will find the Lashenden Air Warfare Museum which is crammed full of interesting war relics painstakingly documented. Of course, you can learn to fly or parachute here if your heart desires. On the day we visited, the aerodrome hosted a classic car show so there is always something different going on.
