GREAT EXPECTATIONS: Private airstrip and model flying site
Note: All six of these pictures were obtained from Google Earth ©
Location: Just W of the B1172, about 2nm SW of Wymondham town centre
Period of operation: 1990s (?) to -
Runway: 1999 = 13/31 460 grass
2006 = 13/31 600 (?) grass
2019 = 13/31 400 grass
Note: In the 1999 picture above, the runway is very clearly defined - but since then it is far from clear to what extent the length is/was.
NOTES: After twenty years at least, doing research for this 'Guide', when I came across this location I was sceptical, confused and in many ways discombobulated. Could an airstrip and model flying site really be known as - "GREAT EXPECTATIONS" ?. Further searching on the inter-web revealed it was.
If somebody can kindly offer more advice, this will be much appreciated.
