KINGS MOOR FARM: Private airstrip  (also known as NUTFIELD)

Aerial view
Aerial view

Note: This picture (2004) was obtained from Google Earth ©

 

Operated by: Mr P J Houston



 

Location: Just N of Redhill Aerodrome, W of South Nutfield village 

Period of operation: Mid 1970s to 1981?


Runway:  18/36   385   grass
 

NOTES: Many years ago I made the note that; it appears that in the mid 1970s at least the Taylor JT.1 Monoplane G-BDEV was based here. Looking into the information available in March 2019 before adding this listing, it seems that in fact Mr P J Houston owned G-BDEV from the 9th of June 1975 until the 11th May 1981. And, his address was in Kings Mill Lane.

It is well known that the existence of a well mown airstrip can be seen from the air for many years after being used, especially during a prolonged dry period. So, is it just my imagination, or can I see evidence of a runway in the 2004 Google Earth picture? All the available evidence seems to fit? And of course, in the 1970s REDHILL was nowhere near as developed as it has been in more recent years.

It is also not unknown for a private airstrip to be laid out in close proximity to a much larger airfield. If anybody can kindly offer advice, this will be much appreciated.
