Visited Crosland Moor (EGND) on Monday 24th June 2013 in G-ROLY a C172 based at Netherthorpe. It was the last leg of the day after visiting Wickenby, Beverley and Breighton. There was no response on the phone for PPR so we called the mobile number mentioned on the website and spoke to a chap who said he was not at the airfield but could see it from a nearby hill. We expected a slightly more difficult approach and landing compared to normal and it did not disappoint. Even with the displaced threshold on 25 we encountered pretty bad wind sheer resulting in sink and a prompt go-around. The 2nd approach I did slightly faster and aimed beyond even the displaced threshold and things were much better. The runway comes up pretty quick to meet you with the slope, slowed down promptly though! To be fair it was rather breezy however I expect it is quite a lot of the time as it is on the top of a hill! The caravan was open (see our photo) and you could help yourself to a drink with the payment honesty jar provided. There was no landing fee as we had a reciprocal landing arrangement with Netherthorpe. Other movements on the airfield included 2 horses and a couple of cars, you get the idea. All in all a rather quirky airfield and maybe one to visit on a less breezy day next time. Unfortunately the camera battery failed on final so no video to show the landing.

Quarrying is still ongoing, but the runway is restored to almost it's original length. (as built in the 1940's )

This Fieseler Storch dropped in at Crosland Moor on its way between displays.

Non-radio too !

Note also the old control tower, found in a nearby scrapyard and given a new life.

Looking up the sloping runway 25. And i think my plane has the strangest prop ever, lol. Just the way my cam seems to capture it.

Made a brief visit into Crossland Moor this morning in a PA-28, not all much to do at the airfield to be honest, but def a good stop-off if you're en route to other locations or exploring the local area. I was a bit worried about the 2.6% upslope on 25, but had no problems at all. The airfield was practically deserted and totally void of any sort of assistance, however, the static caravan they have there provides a toilet and refreshments using an 'honesty box', which in my mind is totally perfect for the size of airfield etc. Def shall return if I'm passing by the area next time, a very relaxed airfield with stunning scenery. Simplicity at its finest!
