Area Map

Keevil airfield is situated off of the A350 between Melksham and Trowbridge. It has good access to the M4 motorway via Chippenham.

To get to the airfield from Melksham, you need to take the A350 towards Trowbridge and keep following the signs. Once you come to the roundabout where the A350 meets the A361 you need to take the 2nd exit and proceed along that road for 1.5 miles, where you need to turn left towards 'Steeple Ashton', take this road all the way through the village.

 

Once you have been through the village you need to turn left once again, the turning is signposted 'Keevil Airfield', carry on down this track for 1 mile where once again there is a turning left, take this turning which takes you into the airfield.

These maps will get you to the gate (it should be locked). Call us from there & we will pick you up.
