An aerial photograph of Brooklands taken from the Byfleet end after the Campbell Circuit which was completed in 1937. The sewage farm which was publicised in 'Those Magnificent Men and their Flying Machines' and the airfield, can be seen clearly. Being in a flood plain Brooklands has always been prone to flooding and the white circle marks the plug which has to be removed to let the water out. The River Wey can be seen as a dark strip running north through the area to the right of the Sahara Straight and exiting under the Hennebique Bridge. To the left of the track is the London to Southampton railway line alongside the appropriately named Railway Straight where the Napier Railton and other fast cars reached speeds of around 160 mph in the late nineteen thirties.
