Northumberland’s Eshott Airfield
Flying from Eshott started in November 1942 when the airfield was developed as a training facility for Spitfire Aircraft; at this time some 2000 people were accommodated on the site.
Over the years most of the war-time facilities have been removed but the original runways remain and have been resurfaced for private flying.
