Henstridge airfield was originally a wartime Fleet Air Arm training site, designated HMS Dipper. After the war Henstridge was taken over by private individuals and has been an active airfield in one form or another ever since!
Of the original five runways only one, 07/25 survives. It is a tarmac runway in good condition, 750m long by 26m wide. The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and the Yakovlevs formation display team are based at the airfield and The Wessex Strut of the LAA have been holding fly-ins here since the seventies. The airfield has become their adopted headquarters.
