You'd have to go down Old Hall Lane, which is at the 07 end. Just so you're aware, it always used to be the case the the people at the BAe gold club which is down there weren't exactly keen on spotters, so staying for more than a few minutes wasn't a good idea. Not too sure if it's got any better now.

I was there on Saturday to take some pictures (in current mil pictures) and nobody battered an eye lid.

Battered eyelid? Sounds tasty. Batted, you mean! :P

Rather than park in the golf club (it's pretty small) there is a layby on the right about 100m before the car park where walkers park. Park there and amble down.

Fancy your chances at the finals doors? There is a footpath straight off the mini roundabout at the bramhall end which can give good views.

Or, follow Bridle Road all the way round for more over the airfield views.

For Historical interest, Roy Chadwicks grave is in the church at Old Hall Lane.
