Like many of the airfields in the Oxfordshire area, Enstone was originally a WW2 bomber base, covering a quite substantial area. Although modern development has encroached on much of the original layout, the main runway has survived, and quite a number of light aircraft are based here.
There are two main areas; unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any access between the two except by driving along the runway (obviously not advisable!), so you'll have to drive all around the airfield and use the individual entrances.
a) The 'main' part of the airfield is reached via a turn-off on the B4022, and then a long drive down a rather rutted track. The control tower is on this side.

b) The other part of the airfield is reached via a turn-off on the B4030, and then driving through an industrial estate to one of the old wartime dispersal areas. This is where the majority of the aircraft hangars are now located, although many of the inmates are microlights and gliders.

Website hosted by one of the flying clubs based at Enstone. Obviously of more interest to pilots than photographers/enthusiasts, but it does include a map and some good useful directions on how to find the industrial area part of the airfield, which can be a bit tricky.
