Great piece of history, best staff, not to be missed. Great easy access and parking. Well organised everyone available to answer questions and help with directions, tenuous place to visit steeped in history, great afternoon even though the weather was grim

The museum does not own the runways which I believe belong to a farmer who keeps a flock of sheep on them. The museum probably know who to contact, maybe worth a phone call.
