located approximately 1 ½ miles west of Clacton town centre & pier. Club house is in West Road opposite Clacton Golf Club.
From A133 at large roundabout take 4th exit into B1027 (St John’s Rd) towards Jaywick & St Osyth. After 1 ½ miles turn left (1st exit) at mini roundabout into Jaywick Lane (signposted to Jaywick Martello tower). After 1 ½ miles turn left into West road at double mini roundabout (there is a signpost to Clacton and the airfield just before the roundabouts). The airfield car park and club house is about ½ mile along west road on the left, just before the entrance to Clacton Golf Club (note - do not confuse this with Millers Barn Golf club in Jaywick Lane).

there are about 10 aircraft based here and sometimes extras in the summer for pleasure flight trade. There is a small clubhouse and garden and all the aircraft can be seen from here although any by the single hangar are quite distant and probably not photographable. The summer car park next to the clubhouse (town side) offers alternative views by walking along the fence and this will give better though still distant views of the hangar.
