Wadswick airfield is a “farm strip”. It is smooth and well drained. The runway is bordered on its north side by a crop of elephant grass and on its south side by a large oak tree, a wall, a fence and parked aircraft. Pilots used to flying only from licenced airfields may find the approaches intimidating. There is a large solar farm to the south east of the runway.
