If arriving from the North, East or South your best bet is to head for Banbury, off J11 of the M40 and then follow the A422 towards Stratford Upon Avon for about 5 miles where Shenington village is signposted to the left.

Follow the main road as it winds its way through the village until you come out the other side on Rattlecombe Road. The airfield is approximately 700m further along on the right.

On arrival please park as indicated  and go to the Clubhouse. If no-one is around there should be a board directing you to the launch point. Please drive with care, keeping to the edge of the hard runways and keep a good lookout for aircraft.

 From the West  join the A422 towards Banbury and turn right towards the Sugarswell Industrial Estate as described below.  

If you are  towing a glider trailer or a caravan please avoid driving through Shenington village as the road is pretty narrow and twisty. Instead, head up the A422 towards Stratford, past the Shenington turn and take the next left.  (signposted Sugarswell Industrial Estate) After one mile, turn left at the crossroads (towards Shutford.) At the next junction, turn left towards Shenington Village. The airfield entrance is about 200m  on the left.
