Housing at Bramcote Barracks seen from Bazzard Road
Bramcote Airfield was constructed in 1939 and has continued as an MoD site to the present day. The site has been known as Gamecock Barracks since the 1960's. It has the rare distinction of having been used by all three forces over its lifetime. Although two of the original hangars were demolished c.2010, many of the original buildings still remain, including several pillboxes around the original airfield perimeter.
