LAM - Lambourne VOR/DME
27th March 2003
The VOR is situated in a field on the south west corner of Stapleford Aerodrome on the A113 in NE London/Essex area. It's near the village of Lambourne after which it's named and also the village of Abridge is nearby.
I walked all the way around the perimeter road of the airfield to get to the beacon.
I grew up in this area, going to school in nearby Chigwell. Our home was appx on the 270 radial from LAM and I can remember laying in the sunshine in our garden and seeing the Heathrow traffic leaving the beacon on vectors for the ILS approach on 27L/R.
