Upper Rissington Parish Council
Welcome to Upper Rissington Parish
Upper Rissington is a village and civil parish of the same name in Gloucestershire, England. The village is on the site of the former Royal Air Force Central Flying School.
The airfield is still active as it’s home to two Volunteer Gliding Squadrons of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets. The military housing, messes and technical site were sold by the MOD to a private developer in 1996, and the village has doubled in size in recent years on the site of the old hangers and other technical buildings.
Several of the buildings of architectural importance such as the Station Head Quarters and the Officers Mess have been retained and converted into housing.
