Sleap aerodrome, 10nm north of Shrewsbury is our nearest neighbour airfield-wise. Former WW2 base for Whitley Bombers, Horsa Glider training and then Wellington Bombers. Still used by the RAF as an overspill for its Squirrel Helicopter training based at Shawbury. Therefore some care required when flying in, and as you should everywhere, observe the local rules.
Two runways, control tower cafe and a small aviation museum.
