Little Rissington Airfield
Little Rissington Airfield
Much of the former RAF Little Rissington has become a business park but it also houses an active Flying Training aerodrome under No.22 (Training) Group. This general view across the runways is from the end of the green lane and in the distance is of part of the business park. The airfield perimeter is dotted with warning signs. The airfield was built in 1937 and soon came to dominate the village and the surrounding area with the residential quarters belonging to it housing nine-tenths of the population of the parish. For many years it was the home of the Central Flying School and a fascinating history is at LinkExternal link and at LinkExternal link There is a RAF Memorial Window in Little Rissington church and part of the graveyard was reserved for those killed whilst on duty at RAF Little Rissington.
