EAST HAXTED FARM: Private airfield

Note: This picture (2013) was obtained from Google Earth ©







 

Location: S to SE of Haxted village, SW of Edenbridge, situated within the Gatwick Control Zone

Period of operation: ?


Runways: Six it seems, but I could only identify five with certainty.

To the SE of the site: 09/27   500   grass          To the NW of this runway:   15/33   530   grass        To the north of this runway:   03/21   205   grass

To the W to NW of this latter runway is another E/W runway:  09/27   435   grass

To the west of the site, and S of Haxted, is the main runway:  08/26   825   grass

A look at Google Earth in 2017 shows two potential shortish N/S runways.


NOTES:
It just goes to show. In 2017 after some twenty years or more researching this subject, I had no idea that such an amazing airfield such as this existed. Indeed, it only came to my attention when the January 2017 AAIB Bulletin arrived in the post. The report is: EW/C2016/07/02.


UNIQUE?
I am quite certain that the arrangement here is unique, in the UK certainly and quite probably elsewhere throughout the world. But, why does such an airfield exist? One obvious explanation is that somebody, very enthusiastic about flying and with the means to create such a 'set-up', has devised an arrangement to suit almost any flying conditions.

If anybody can kindly offer more information about this singular flying site, this will be much appreciated.
