Just found this on another website:
Vintage and Classic Day
Turweston Airfield, Nr. Brackley
Sunday 18th September, 2005
The event is an informal gathering of owners and enthusiasts for all things mechanical and will include vintage and classic motor cycles, cars, military vehicles, tractors, commercial vehicles and if the weather permits, a good selection of aircraft.
The airfield is situated 2.5 miles east of Brackley, can be accessed from A43 just North of the first Brackley exit and is clearly signposted to Turweston Airfield and Whitfield village.
Gates open 09:30
We were looking for somewhere to go next Sunday, and just wondered if anyone else was planning to attend this event. I've heard there will be bacon butties!!
Subject to getting a heli, we're considering it as it's not too far from Wellesbourne.
Cabbage patch is clearly marked on charts (certainly in Pooley's anyway). When I dropped in on my QXC, it was a fenced off area (possibly electric fence!) - I don't recall any cabbages though!! Probably best approached from the south if you can. _________________ J.
Well there you go then - I should check these things first!
From what I recall, we/I flew (with instructor first, of course) east abeam to make an approach from the south/south east - straight in to the Cabbage Patch. Certainly little/no hover-taxiing involved. _________________ J.

The reason for cancelling your PPR apparently was due to noise measuring at the airfield otherwise it wouldn't have been a problem to have directed you actually on to the field...
The NIMBY's are causing the TW and the AC much grief with our events - last year we suffered becuase the events were not given the planning permission despite the recommendation by their (AVDC's) planning officer!!!
