The Airfield .....
 
Lydeway Field was started back in 2001 when I was looking to purchase a field near to my home to use as an airstrip for the Europa I had just finished building. The field has an east-west orientation and is on flat ground. It is just north of a railway line which is parallel to the strip aiding identification. The 800m prepared strip is smoother than many of the grass airfields around. At present there are 3 aircraft based on the strip, a Vans RV8, an ARV Super 2 and a Cessna C182. We operate under the 28 day rule so PPR is essential. The strip is in a conservation area so we need to minimise our noise imprint and be mindful of our neighbours. Please give a wide berth to the red areas and avoid overflying the yellow areas on the arrival/departure map. The field has no hangarage but we have recently positioned a trailer based clubhouse on the parking area so now we can offer tea/coffee to visitors.
