It’s May (nearly) so it must be time for another airfield cafe!
This is Compton Abbas. Makes Old Sarum look positively suburban but ticks all the boxes and it has a bar!
If you’ve never riden up Zig Zag Hill, you must try it (once). It’s very over-rated and to be honest, I don’t like hairpins very much. I’m more of the “sweeping bends” type.
The local sausage baguettes are highly recommended.
I’m bringing the Bulldog RAT boys here on Sunday (1st May) – we’ll see what they make of it.
This is a great cafe (not to mention a stonking ride from Wokingham)
First impressions of the airfield are that it looks a bit like an industrial estate with a brand new housing development across the road. However, once into the little narrow roads between the old hangars, the view opens out to the vast green airfield, the cafe and a special bike park!
The cafe is really nice, drinks and hot food available 7 days per week.
The airfield offers light aircraft, helicopters, gyrocopters, micro-lights (and coffee)
Here’s the Cafe. The sun came out shortly afterwards…
You are right next to the (aircraft) parking area.
There’s even a special bike park (Please keep off the grass…) 🙂
Here’s the view on Sunday 10th April:
A few more bikes there today...
