SK0725 : Entrance to former RAF Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire

near to Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Entrance to former RAF Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire.
Entrance to former RAF Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire.
The entrance is just off the B5014, Abbots Bromley to Uttoxeter road. The now derelict, former guardroom that stands at the entrance, is about all that remains of RAF Abbots Bromley. Few other traces of its wartime history can be found. The airfield was built during the Second World War as a Relief Landing Ground for the RAF's training airfield at Burnaston, near Derby (now the site of the Toyota factory). The landing ground was on the flat land in the centre of this grid square and it quickly reverted back to farmland shortly after the end of the War. Farm buildings can be found just to the rear of the trees in the background of the image.
