    About 1.5km from my front door (just under a mile US). Top of a hill overlooking the airport which is visual only and so shut down at night, as in no lights on. Disused playing field and a couple of houses whose occupants go to bed early

    Nice, flat, open horizons. Quite nice. If the weather cooperates I will be someplace similar this weekend (only it will be about a four hour drive).
