To quote [www.guardian.co.uk] :-
Just outside Crossgates on the A44 is a large notice which proclaims: “Llandegley International Airport, 2.5 miles”. However, at Llandegley there are only low mountains and lightly wooded hills, among which it would be difficult to land even a light aircraft. Does anyone have an explanation?

I’ve been past this sign many times in the past few years – it looks very professional, in the correct font for a roadsign, and currently advertises:
Terminals 1 and 3 ; Terminal 2 Under Construction
…which will be a deeply resonant concept for anyone else who (like me) lives in the catchment area for LHR.
I finally thought to feed it into Google, yielding [www.llandegleyinternational.com] :-

The funny thing is, I am pretty certain there is a small glider airstrip somewhere nearby…
