and Proving Ground
Bruntingthorpe Airfield and Proving Ground is a privately owned, ex WW2 airfield and post-war nuclear bomber base that still operates as an operational airfield, as well as a proving ground for the testing of a variety of types of vehicles. Parts of the site are also used for vehicle storage.
The site’s size and diversity make it an ideal film or photographic shoot location. Set in 670 acres, there is a mixture of open land, either laid to tarmac or concrete, combined with expanses of open grassland. There are also large areas of woodland that are accessible. The test tracks are centred around the main runway which is an impressive 2 miles long ideal for high speed vehicle shoots. Also available is a cross country test track, incorporating dirt-tracks, woodlands or deep water. The site regularly features in programmes such as Top Gear, Fifth Gear and the Gadget Show.
