Wisley Airfield is in Ockham, Surrey near to RHS Wisley.

Taylor Wimpey are planning to develop this area into a large a large housing estate. There is local opposition to the plans despite the airfield being abandoned for over 50 years. It currently has some use as farm land and for the VOR (aircraft beacon) however the hangers and control tower building are long since demolished and only the concrete runway, hangar bay and taxi way remain. Public footpaths weave across the runway and it is still used by dog walkers and horse riders.
