Marham viewing - 2020

Post by Campbell89 » Thu Jul 23, 2020 3:17 pm

Apologies if this has already been asked, I had a look and couldn’t see any recent topics around this.

I’m heading to Lakenheath and Mildenhall early next month and whilst I’m in the area I’m planning on a visit to Marham.

I’ve only spotted at Marham once, just before the Tornado retired and it was from the field to the south of the airfield which the farmer kindly opened for spotters.

I am now led to believe that the viewing around Marham is limited, I was planning to try and spot from A, B or C if possible on the Thunder and Lightning’s guide.

Are these spots still accessible does anyone know? Am I able to park at point A and walk to the other locations?

Currently you can park at A and walk to B and C

Parking at A is quite limited 10 cars at a push. Normally there are only a couple of cars there but recently Marham is proving popular for some reason!

Also Spot A is only useful if runway 24 is in use AND the farmer isn't in the field under the approach lights - try not to block access to the field

Brilliant, is that probably the beat place to spot from at Marham?

On average yes as 24 is normally the prevailing runway in use.
