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.
The northern part of Hornchurch Country Park is on the site of Suttons Farm, once part of the medieval Manor of Suttons. The southern part was within Dovers Manor, later Albyns Farm. During WWI an airfield was created at Suttons Farm, leading to the development of RAF Hornchurch, and during WWII it was home to fighter aircraft.
