    I think the other 7 people that have established use may have (valid) grounds to contest

    It was bought for 22mil by Wharf Land Investment (Jersey) Limited
    Their London office is 7 Farm Street London W1J 5RX, if you want to right them a begging letter

    From what I can see on the register, there is no noise restrictions, with it being previously used to test bombers! If you can go back in time you could have bought it 80 years ago for 10 shillings Also there is multiple charges on the land... so yeah I would say the current owners are having some financial difficulty

    Waving cash looks like a good angle to take from what's said so far Lots of fivers look better than a few fifties

    I think just a letter should be ok tbh, one of the guys here had a quick look and its been used before by land rover and some shooting clubs... Probably at the same time

    It looks like there is a lane that actually runs right through the centre of the main runway

    hello mate, me and a few people used to take some mini motos down there for a laugh but without asking obviously and we would enter via the blocked off entrance just off the a3 so no one would see us enter, we would never stick around for longer than 20 minutes though as the entrance we came in by also has the main road attached which leads to the houses... anyway, any news on this as id be up for contributing to some fun on these grounds.
