Location
The site is located approximately 2 km (1.25 miles) to the north of Junction 17 of the M4 motorway, just off the A429.

Description
The main site area is rectangular in shape and comprises the northern element of the former open

There are two further areas known as Site B and Site E which are to the north-east and west of the main site area respectively. Each of these areas incorporate two 'E' type hangars. The hangars were constructed between 1939 and 1942 and are of steel framed and reinforced concrete domed roof construction covered by earth/ vegetation (except hangar 181) and with concrete floors. The site area incorporates an element of the former airfield perimeter track together with vehicular and pedestrian access roads which serve the hangars. The site area extends to approximately 36 ha (89 acres).
