Evening ride to Blakehill Farm – Weds 5th June 2019

June 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

75 years ago on this day RAF Blakehill Farm would have been buzzing with Pre- D Day activity. Gliders and Dakotas would be been being prepped and loaded ready. Sadly little to see now but it is still worth a visit to spend a few moments looking at the two memorials and the history boards. We hope to meet local historian Vincent Povey runs www.rafblakehillfarm.co.uk where you can find out lots of very interesting stuff including how the site played a part in the cold war. We will start at the Oasis at 6pm and will pick up anyone wishing to join us at Moulden Hill car park about 20-30 mins later.

Please book on this ride at https://www.letsride.co.uk/rides/pre-d-day-evening-ride-to-raf-blakehill-farm

Starting at – Oasis Leisure Centre, SN2 1EP / Moulden Hill car park
