An RAF base from the 1930s through World War II and operated as a training base until the 1980s. During the 1980s and early 1990s the base was operated by the USAF, eventually closing in 1994. In 1996 the housing in the ‘village’, now called Upper Rissington, was sold off.
The former RAF base was purchased by Linden & Bovis Homes in 2012. Albion Water was contracted to provide water and waste water services to the new development area known as Victory Fields and to refurbish and adopt the old private water and waste water infrastructure in the village. The successful refurbishment of the water supply network has resulted in a more reliable service and leakage has been reduced by 1 million litres a day. Albion has also been involved in assisting and managing an important local area of calcareous grassland and is currently working with the developers to design a retention lake that forms a central part of a ground breaking community water recycling scheme.
