First time visit to Monewden today. Found it very easy to spot and the approaches are nice and clear. Called for PPR (essential)and was briefed to fly 1 1/2 mile finals for noise abatement reasons. The main thing on the RW22 approach in use when I visited was to avoid the village and church when turning base to finals. All easy to spot when in the circuit. The runway condition was excellent and in addition to 22 / 04 there was also a cross runway (sloping)used by local traffic. Extremely warm welcome from the local pilots who made us a cup of tee. landing fee is £10. there are no other facilities available for visiting pilots as its just a farm strip. No dedicated radio frequency so we used Safetycom and made blind calls - and kept our eyes open. 3 or 4 aircraft arrived and departed in the 30 mins that we where there so certainly a bit of activity.

It's short, it's a bit bumpy, but it's a lovely little strip. It is however very remote and hard to find without a GPS. There are trees at the East end of the runway. You need to use the whole of the runway as it's on clay and can be a little gukky as a result. But don't believe what you may read elsewhere, the field is open and the natives are friendly!
