Here are two historical accounts relating to Aviation in Haslingfield – submitted by Nigel Perry:
Mustang P-51D crash Sunday 6 August 1944
The P-51D Mustang was from the 339th Fighter Group Fowlmere. It had taken off from Fowlmere at 08.35 hrs on a mission and spun in out of a cloudbase of 700 feet, crashed through hedges bordering Cantelupe Road, roughly 100 yards beyond the footpath at Lesanna Farm at 08.50 hrs. The aircraft exploded in a field right of the road. Wreckage was strewn 400 yards with bullets exploding.
The pilot 2/Lt Arthur Tongue was thrown out and sadly killed. He is buried in the American War Cemetery at Madingley Plot E Row 4 Grave #73. Read more

Over the last two weeks we’ve seen a big increase in the number of pre orders, putting the village within touching distance of the target required to green light the project.
Although this is great news, we still need as many people as possible to register for the service actually to make it a reality. If you’ve signed up for the service already please spread the word to your neighbours, friends and family. And if you’re interested and haven’t signed up as of yet, please head over to www.countybroadband.co.uk and enter your post code.
If you have any questions please get in contact:
