We flew into Weybourne on 8 September with the greyhounds who had decided they needed a short holiday. The airfield itself is just that. An airFIELD. There is a steep slope up from the cliffs and unless the wind is very strong, I would choose to land uphill and take-off downhill. We have landed downhill before, (in a 20kt wind), but looking uphill from the longer of the two runways, (around 600m), I doubt we would out-climb the trees on top of the hill and an early left turn would take you over the village which is a no-no. Having said all that, we love this airfield. The approach over the coast is over wartime anti-aircraft gun emplacements and an active MoD radar station. (The fence of which is VERY close to the runway and is a marked hazard, so beware). It is owned by the Muckleborough collection of military vehicles and guns and also has a caravan site at one side. The views at the airfield are lovely and you don’t even need PPR. Of course, facilities are few – there is a caravan with a loo and running water if needed where you can pay the £5 landing fee and enter details in the movement log. One word of warning – the access to the airfield is via the access road to the Muckleborough Collection and they lock the gates at 5.30pm. You can squeeze through the side, but beware of the prickly bushes! Close by we stayed at the Maltings Hotel, (very dog friendly) and ate there as well as the local pub – good food, good beer and dog friendly. There is also the North Norfolk Railway which is superb and well worth a visit. All in all, the greyhounds loved it and promised to take us back again one day!
