Little Gransden Airfield (Back-Up Site)


Little Gransden Airfield is the back-up site for our Knebworth and Biggleswade launch sites.

The launch site is on the North East corner of the airfield.

This is an active airfield, so please do not wander around.

We meet on Fullers Road to the North of the farm and the main entrance by a big yellow set of gates.

Further information about back-up sites and why and when they may be used can be found here or within the information sent with your balloon flight voucher.


From the A1, exit onto the B1042 signposted towards Potton and follow this road for approximately 4 miles. As you pass through Potton the road will change to the B1040 and you will see signs for Gamlingay. Follow the road for another 2.5 miles and at the crossroads in the centre of Gamlingay, turn right towards Gransden. Follow this road for 2 miles, pass the main entrance for Fullers Hill Farm and the airfield, and after the last white cottage on the left, drive to the end of the hedge where you will find the entrance. If the gate is locked, please park considerately and wait for the crew to arrive.

Please park facing towards the exit/entrance parallel to the gravel track next to the grass embankment (parking is free).

We meet at the end of the gravel track accessed through the yellow metal gates. If the gates are locked, please park and wait in a sensible manner.

We drive down this track and then the passengers park facing back out on the side of the track against the small embankment.

Under no circumstances are passengers to drive past the end of the gravel track and passengers must stay near their cars.

Please don't wander around as we are right next to the main runway which is active 24 hours.

Please note there are no toilet facilities at this location.
