A GLORIOUS PAST, AN EXCITING FUTURE
Opened in 1938, RAF Little Rissington – known to all as Little Rissi – became a vital Flying Training School and Maintenance Unit during WWII. The airbase was the training ground for thousands of pilots, 705 of which received gallantry awards, and four the Victoria Cross. Since the War, Little Rissington has been the home of the Red Arrows and was the largest military contingency hospital in Europe during the Gulf War.
In a new era for this now decommissioned airbase, Linden Homes are proud to be creating Victory Fields, which will bring new homes, and enhance education, shopping and leisure opportunities for the local community.
LIFE AT VICTORY FIELDS IN THE HEART OF THE COTSWOLDS
Set on a hilltop location and surrounded by open countryside, Victory Fields has all the makings of a thriving and well-served new community.
Over 350 homes will be provided around a new village square that will include a local shop, a proposed public house, gym and nursery. A primary school will be built in this beautiful and peaceful location that is perfect for the growing family. A new community hall will be a great venue for gatherings and other community activities.
In the mature landscaped grounds residents can stroll around wildlife ponds; there will be play areas for children; and fantastic new playing fields and tennis courts for the sports enthusiasts.
