The Airfield
The North Moor Aero Club was formed in October 2008 for light,
single engine aircraft and in conjunction with their home. The model flying section of the club commenced around 2008. There are now approximately 50 members in total. The air field only uses only a small proportion of the land on the southern boundary, leaving the rest for other uses such as, touring caravans, holiday lodges, fishing lakes and equestrian activities, subject to planning consent. Our client informs us that there is also planning permission to store fuel on site. If the buyer wishes, the Club members have indicated that they would be willing to run the Club and Airfield carrying out all of the necessary work.
