History of RAF Defford Walk

Loading Events

Event Description

This secret airbase was where Radar was put into the aircraft of the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) and tested and developed to help win the Second World War. Walking round the various points will give the walker an idea of the scale of the operation. Led by an RAF Defford Museum volunteer telling stories of the various sites around the airfield and the grounds, the walk will take about two hours, starting and finishing at the museum with the opportunity to visit the museum afterwards.

Admission to Croome applies and booking is essential.
