Re: Help -Plane Crash

I have only just started to look at the Bobbington website hence the delayed response to your message.
My parents told me that a plane crashed in a small wood that used to be part of a farm owned by the Roberts family. There were some dead trees where the plane crashed. The small wood was about 3/4 mile south of the airfield alongside the road that runs from the south west corner of the airfield to Highgate common. It may be just a story and it may not be connected with the plane crash that interests you.
Hope that helps.
