"Visiting pilots are advised that both runways at Shifnal are situated on a working farm. Please be alert for activities associated with multi-function airfields like this one.
The runways are suitable for microlights and other recreational aircraft with similar STOL performance but like many farm airstrips they are bordered in places by hazards such as fences and trees. This makes it essential for pilots not to allow their aircraft to drift off the circuit pattern on approach and landing or take off and climb out."
