    Default Willingale Airfield (former RAF Chipping Ongar)


    The runway was removed to make the M11 in the 1970's!

    The place was discussed as a possiblity for usuage as London's 3rd Airport which in the end became Stansted. Now returned to farming, there are some airside buildings still standing. Not sure what there role was.

    The Runways were removed in 1965 for hardcore in the building of the Brentwood bypass. A12.
