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.
