Excellent Airfield CL

Great weekend. Epitome of how a UK Airfield should be. Don't turn left down Steventon Rd, wait till 'Popham Airfield' sign on the wall, then follow the Caravan signs. Lovely field, short grass & the three essentials for a CL with the five well marked pitches with a wood behind. Bonus is the excellent Club house (24hr WCs opposite) where I enjoyed the food & drink (discount card given on arrival) in their Cafe with so many different visiting public enjoying the variety of activities Popham offers. Lovely walk to Overton (approx 4 miles & two pubs) seeing hares, deer & source of the river Test using the OS map. You will need wheels if you need a shop & visiting local pubs, Bombay Sapphire Distillery, Whitchuch Silk Mills with it's Royal connection not too far. Interesting aircraft with lots going on, while I was there, The Jaguar Club met, Model flying, Drone training, pleasure flights, Gyrocopters, Motocross in the distance, cyclists turning up, spotters & motorcyclists all friendly to talk to and enjoying the day - yet as evening falls, you get the hush back to yourself. A303 audible but no problem. Book it!
