Walk the dogs here after visiting the Veterinary. It's a lovely area to stroll around. At the same time musing about it's history as an RAF aerodrome during WW2. The cafe used to be the Control Tower and has a small museum of interesting artifacts.

Not only a great place to walk, there is history attached. Great to see what used to be a WW2 aero drone. No planes now but plenty of sheep, ponies and cattle. Well worth a visit.

Interesting place a few hundred metres from Yelverton shops and church. Before you go look at the RAF Harrowbeer website via Google and also the excellent Google Earth pictures which show the layout and runways. This WWII fighter aerodrome was built hastily after the devastation...More
