From Bradmoor Farm
By Haddenham Webteam - 12th March 2017 2:00pm
The recent sad passing of the motor racing legend, John Surtees, resulted in some discussions on the Haddenham.net Facebook page about the history of the Haddenham Airfield as a racetrack on which some famous names have raced.
Richard Spicer has very kindly pointed out a website page on which the history of the Airfield Racetrack is presented.
For those residents who would like to know more about this significant aspect of Haddenham's history, please see here.
Our thanks to Richard Spicer.
