Regeneration of WWII airfield

Cheddington Airfield played an important role in World War 2, as home of RAF operational training units. 70 years later, the estate is currently undergoing a re-generation scheme to modernise. Old and damaged Nissan Huts have been replaced with new steel fabricated industrial units to hold various new clubs and businesses and a new café has been constructed to service the business community.

The new build café is a single story brick building with a Double Roman tile roof. Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix Valley Troughs for high profile tiles, HDL DVT/1, have been selected by Roof Craft from roofing merchant Advance Roofing, and now feature on the roof valley intersections. Roofcraft are experienced roofing contractors. They have been trading for over 25 years and have handled many jobs for local authorities in the Buckinghamshire area. Peter Thomson, Roof Craft, explained that he selected Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix Valley Trough due to the obvious advantages of a mortarless option, plus the benefits of an installation process which is easy and straightforward and gives a neat, close cut finish.
