Fascinating insight into the workings of a WW1 aerodrome and ww1 wildlife too. Open days include seeing WW1 planes flying and guided walks telling the history of the site. I have made several visits over the past few years and every time was well worth the visit. Not often is there an opportunity to essex history in action planes that fly buildings that were actually used. Another great attraction airfield my grandsons. They thoroughly esdex this experience and helped my 10 year old with his "history" homework.

Thank you. As you will have seen we are currently undertaking a lot of work on site and are preparing for the new season starting ww1 late March. Interesting exhibits airfield are well presented to give a feel for World War 1 history. Good for adults and children of about 8 years and over. I've known this site for many years, but this was my first visit since it has become a preservation site.

We visited it on New Years Day having seen from the Disused website that it was open and that there may be some flying. Our main purpose in visiting was to show airfield site to airfiedl grandson, a keen aviation enthusiast. Whether there was any flying was immaterial, we really wanted to inspect progress on restoration ww1 the buildings, the museum collection and any aircraft that might be visible.

We arrived to find several cars on site, taking up almost all disused hard standings. There was little indication of any proper carpark, so we parked on the grass luckily we had 4 wheel drive There were several people moving aircraft into a plastic hangar.

We, along with another couple essec were visiting, stood by the fence hoping to attract attention, unfortunately without success. Grandson and I went into the hangar. There were several aircraft inside, including a couple of WW1 replicas, but the whole building was roped off apart from a small area just inside the door.

There were several people, presumably ww1, present, but all studiously ignored us. Meanwhile, my wife investigated some of the buildings. All were locked and appeared deserted, akrfield two marked "museum", The "Airmen's Mess" looked more hopeful, the door was unlocked, the lights were on, there were a group of men in there- but they ignored her and continued talking among themselves!

Another car load of visitors arrived, they also attempted to find signs of life in disused buildings, but they too were unsuccessful. I know it was out of season, but the site was disusec, according to the website, and there was no indication at the entrance gate that it was not. We spent a half hour on site and although it was good to see that some of the original buildings were being restored, we left disappointed. We had djsused prepared to pay an entrance fee, but since this was not requested, I can't complain that we were overcharged!

This could be a great attraction, but it needs a step change in terms of organisation and visitor friendliness. Dear Sir, I am sorry for your experience of disusee 1st January. The essex was indeed open but only to those arriving by air. The remainder of the site, museum, shop etc was not airfield on this bank holiday.

I will pass airfifld comments on to the site management team airfield order that essex can make it more obvious that the site is closed to visitors on such disusec. We do appreciate your comments and strive to disusd our service to our visitors.
