Some parts of Fenland airfield in Lincolnshire (the hangars and grass runways) are reportedly on the market for £2.5m.

The sale also includes a six-bedroom Manor House with 2.5 acres of grounds, an industrial yard comprising two buildings and approximately five acres of industrial land in three separate lots.  

Long term tenant the Fenland Aero Club (FAC) already owns the clubhouse, tower, and fuel system for Avgas and JetA1, and has expressed strong interest in purchasing the rest of the airfield. The AeroClub also owns all the supporting infrastructure, such as the runway lights, and is the license holder for the airfield’s CAA Aerodrome License.  

Fenland has two grass strips, the 600m 18/36 runway which is licensed (although only 518m is available when landing on 18 due to the displaced threshold) and the unlicensed 08/26 strip, which is 670m long. A cafe and around fifty aircraft are based on the field, which has also been the location over the years for many flight tests done by Pilot.
