Shobdon Airfield Cafe
The area of the café formerly served use as Shobdon Airfield, when it opened in 1940 at the start of World War II. It was originally named Pembridge Landing Ground and the very first aircraft based here was the legendary Westland Lysander. As a tribute, the cafe has named a breakfast option by the same name. It was later upgraded in 1941, when a hard runway was added and the place was renamed as Shobdon Airfield.
In the post war period, the airfield was abandoned by the military. It fell into a state of disrepair right up to the early sixties until a newly formed flying club was permitted to use its facilities. It still is going strong till the present day.
