Hornchurch Country Park (also known as RAF Hornchurch, Hornchurch Aerodrome)

Introduction

The airfield closed in 1962 but many remaining features can be seen along the Eastern Pathway. The area was re-landscaped as a country park in 1980 and is left to develop naturally; it is bordered to the east by the Ingrebourne River.
