Best and easiest place is location A on this map: https://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.u ... anwell.php the parking is just off the side road and safe to get out and scan around.

Good views across the airfield right next to the centre line for runway 09 with plenty of parking space

Not sure if there's a busy times, normal 'RAF opening hours' to be expected probably quiet on a Friday afternoon. Grob's and Phenom's are the main aircraft.

I agree Point A is the best place to read stuff on the ground and it is ok for photos and plenty of parking

Point M is good if they are landing to the south on the cross runway and there is parking for one or two cars

Don't forget Barkston Heath a few minutes south.

Mike,

Cranwell had 9 changes in the Dec 19 update, approach frequency was one of them.
