Wisley Airfield – Save Our Greenbelt

Wisley Airfield is a former wartime airfield located in the Parish of Ockham near Wisley in Surrey. Originally a grass airstrip, the runway was converted to tarmac in 1952 and used to test aircraft built at Weybridge by Vickers. Flying ceased in 1973 because the runway was too short for large aircraft and was too close to Heathrow. All the structures on the site were removed, except for the runway, at the time the land was sold back to its principal former owner in 1980 for agricultural use.

The green and leafy fields of Surrey, in which Longcross; a dispersed village across a woodland and farmland area of Green Belt is a part of, should remain that way.
This Harris/Freedman Production illustrates our green and pleasant land in which for all to see.
