As a resident near Ripple , I can tell you that when I visited Heathrow last week to collect an item of freight the noise those jets make is awful. Interesting though that they have to actually have bird wardens who love the noise so much they nest in the grass. Apparently they even have to have areas for the hedgehogs and there is a badger set too.
Incidently have a chat to some of the residents in Ripple and ask if they object to the little planes already landing at a farm strip just down from the church. I understand its a well loved part of the community and well liked for the community get togethers that are held.
