Phone Swindon City Council and try and get a number.

If they are privately owned and you wave a bit of cash in the owners face i'm sure they'll be more than happy to lend you an airstrip for a few nights.

If open access and not in use, then go and use them. If someone comes up and says you can't just say sorry you didn't know, and then leave
