Kennel Farm - Warlingham Airfield

Submitted by: Terence Haynes

Kennel Farm airfield Chelsham, Warlingham, has been the subject of a local council 'consultation' on housing development and coincidentally ( well, it obviously isn't a coincidence ) 'No Trespassing' notices have now gone up. This has been an open-access unfenced field for as long as anyone can remember and a favourite spot for dog-walking, bird watching and recently Hang Gliding & Parasailing by winch - operated I believe by Green Dragons who are based nearby in Woldingham. Kennel Farm was apparently a Q Decoy site during the war and I would welcome any photos or memories of this and its use as an airfield which will help protect its future. I've attached a pic which incidentally also shows the "Hamsey Green' airfield operated from 1933 to 1957 ( originally the 'Gardner' private airfield and subsequently during and after the war by ATC Glider 162. Any photos / memories of this also appreciated. Terry Haynes

    Having spent my childhood from the 1950's and 1960's in Meadway which is just to the back of the what was the airfield, qwe spent many a time playing in the disused hanger and the two air raid shelters, the hanger was of a metal type with breze block internal walls, which were divided up into about ten roosm or so, with a large service area of the aircraft, both front and back had a large concrete hard standing area, and about a 100 yards away there was a large crator which we call the bomb hole, having made a recent visit to the area a year or so ago, it was to my horror that I discovered the hanger had been removed, the air raid shelters were no longer there and the bomb hole filled in, what a shame to loose some of our History
