About

Great Saling is a village in the Braintree district and is approximately six miles from Braintree town. The village is in the Sailings Parish and features a caravan park, a guest house, a village hall and the White Hart Inn.

The village features the first aerodrome to be built by the Americans in this country. Work on Andrews Field aerodrome was started in July 1942 and built in under a year. The aerodrome is named after one of the famous generals of the American air force, Frank M. Andrews. The runways were built with the hardcore that came from the ruins of the London blitz.
