Visited Compton Abbas from Netherthorpe on 19/06/2012 in G-ROLY a Cessna 172. We routed via the TNT VOR and south. Lots of glider sites to the north west but we avoided them. Difficult to spot initially and the circuit diagram in Pooleys makes it hard to relate to the actual area. We were trying to avoid the noise sensitive areas on the Pooleys plate but ended up too wide we believe. Anyway once landed on the long but slightly bumpy runway we parked and had a look around. Very clean and tidy, lovely view all around. The airfield is situated on a hill with lots of greenery around. Lunch was excellent with a gourmet burger really hitting the spot, with a drink there was not much change from £10 though. We ate outside in the sunshine watching the aircraft, including aerobatic aircraft performing above the field. Taxi into Shaftesbury was around £9. Nice pilots room where we paid the landing fee and got the book so we could fuel up, this was self service. Friendly airfield and well worth a visit for the views and area.
