Felton Common

This location is very good when runway 27 is in use for landings and take offs, arriving aircraft are a few hundred feet above you and provide a great spot for close up photos and videos, numerous YouTube videos have been recorded here, this spot is to the east of the A 38 is right under the flight path.

Getting Here

If you are coming up from the South, with the Airport on your left hand side, you will come up to the Silver Zone Car park and Bristol Flying Centre roundabout. Go across this roundabout, and you will pass under the runway 27 threshold. Keep going until you get to the next roundabout, which is for the main terminal. Go across that one, down a little hill under a bridge, then take the first right, you will go across a cattle grid, keep going until you reach a road on your right called Felton Street, turn right up this road and go to the very top where you will need to park on the grass areas with the other cars. Park here and walk across the common to where the landing lights are.

If your coming down to the airport from the North, with the airport on your right, you will see a pub called the Airport Tavern which will be on your right, before this is a road on the left which will go across a cattle grid keep going along this road until you reach a road on your right called Felton Street, turn right up this road and go to the very top where you will need to park on the grass areas with the other cars. Park here and walk across the common to where the landing lights are. But do not enter the field where the landing lights are as this is private land.
