Your data on West Wales Airport needs updating due to completion of a runway extension.
Matthew Stibbe says
Hi Wil, if you have more up to date information about West Wales Airport feel free to post it as a comment or email me with the new information. I run this site as a hobby and it makes no money (perhaps
See http://www.stilwell-ltd.co.uk/html/wwa_runway_ext… for some details of the runway extension.
Also the clowns seem to have lost control of their website, so you should drop that URL for now.
Oh, and your listing of hotels, pubs and restaurants seems bizarre. There are several pubs, hotels and restaurants in Aberporth, the nearest town. And there is the Rhyd Country House Hotel in Blaenannerch, the nearest hotel to the airport. Cardigan is a 10-minute journey by car, but Aberaeron and Newport are longer journeys.
Matthew Stibbe says
Thanks for the updates and links, Paul. That's very helpful.
I will review the listing for Aberporth soon – it's been a year or so since it went live.
Do you have any suggestions for more local restaurants, pubs etc. First-person experience is really helpful.
