Location:  About 1.5nm SW of Much Dewchurch village, roughly 7nm SSW of Hereford city centre

Period of operation: Unknown?  Probably circa 2007/8 to 2016?

Note: Looking at Google Earth images there appears to be no evidence of this airstrip in 2006, or in 2017


Runway:  01/19   460   grass


NOTES:  As always in this 'Guide', if anybody can kindly offer advice, this will be much appreciated.

I have added the second picture above, simply to illustrate just misleading looking at aerial pictures can be. Although Google Earth give both images as being from 2009, it would be easy to assume from the second picture that the 01/19 runway was just 280 metres long.
