Great Oakley Airfield is 5 miles to the West of the old town of Harwich.
From the A12 at Colchester, take the A120 signed for Harwich. Continue on the A120 to Wix but ignore the first turning right to Wix (to avoid driving through the village) and take the second turning right (Harwich Road). Take the first left (Oakley Road) and continue to the village of Great Oakley where you turn left into School Road, the main road through the village. Immediately after the village, look for the sign to Great Oakley Airfield on the left.
