The Duty Crew are very helpful and a visit to their office (see plan) to ask for permission to walk round is normally granted usually on the proviso that you do not go into hangars unless somebody in a particular hangar gives permission. There are 6 hangars (in pairs) on the eastern side and the HeliAir hangar to the southern end of the business park area. Their ramp is visible from the northern side (see position A on the map).

As a matter of courtesy please remember to call back at the Duty Crew office to say ‘thank you’ before leaving, you will help maintain access for future visiting enthusiasts

If permission cannot be granted for any reason the main aircraft parking area can be viewed from the car park fence which is quite low so no need for steps. These 2 photos were taken from the fence line:

There are 2 café/restaurants on the park, one of which has an outside viewing terrace overlooking the airfield.

here are a few photos taken on or around the hangars to give an idea of what is possible if access is granted:
