History
At 750ft above sea level in the beautiful Cotswolds, this exciting new community was once the highest airfield in regular use in the country. Royal Air Force Station Little Rissington, or 'Rissi' as it was affectionately known, flew into action in 1938. It was home to the RAF's Central Flying School for 30 years and to both its aerobatic teams, the Red Pelicans and later, the Red Arrows. As Commandant-in-Chief of the Flying School, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother was an occasional VIP guest at Officers' Mess dinners. From the 1970s the base was used by both the British Army and the United States Air Force in Europe. The Station closed in 1994, but some of the land is still owned by the Ministry of Defence and is used by 637 Volunteer Gliding Squadron.

Getting around
The A40 is within easy reach of Burford and Oxford, leading to junction 8 of the M40. The A429 Fosseway is close by and the M4 about 36 miles away. The Regency Spa town of Cheltenham gives access to the M5 at junction 11. The Cotswold towns of Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold are less than a 5 mile drive and buses link Bourton-on-the-Water to Cheltenham. Trains run from Kingham Station, just 5 miles away, or Moreton-in-Marsh, 9 miles away, both of which run regular services to London Paddington. For air travel Birmingham International Airport is 49 miles away, while Heathrow is approximately 70 miles away.

A trip to the shops
There is a local convenience store at Victory Fields and with just a short drive to Bourton-on-the-Water, you'll find a range of local shops. At the nearby Cotswold towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford, and Moreton-in-Marsh, you'll find many more local shops, with a Tesco supermarket at Stow, a Co-operative at Burford and a Warner's Budgens at Moreton. Cirencester and the Regency Spa town of Cheltenham both have High Street brands, department stores, independent boutiques, specialist shops and retail parks, while city shopping in historic Oxford offers yet more choice.

Taking time out
Soak up the beautiful Cotswold countryside with scenic walks, cycling or visiting some of the many pretty towns and villages. Victory Fields has its own café, The Hangar, a gym and there are sports and leisure classes for all ages at the community hall. Cotswold Leisure at Bourton-on-the-Water offers swimming, fitness, gym and sports facilities and the village has its own cricket, tennis and football clubs. Children will love Birdland Park and Gardens with more than 500 feathered species and the famous Cotswold stone model village. Take a trip to Cirencester, Cheltenham or Oxford for theatre, cinema, fine dining and live entertainment.

Education
The Rissington School is split between the new site at Victory Fields and the Victorian building at Great Rissington and caters for children from 4-11 years. For senior pupils, aged 11-18 years, the Cotswold School at Bourton-on-the-Water, an Academy Trust secondary school, has an impressive pedigree. For the fourth consecutive time it has received an 'outstanding' Ofsted rating across all categories and in September 2016, it was awarded 'The Sunday Times Comprehensive School of the Year'. At Cheltenham just 23 miles away the University of Gloucestershire offers a wide selection of degree courses.
