Gazebo Farm
Gazebo Farm
This used to be the farmhouse of Gazebo Farm. The farm has long since ceased to exist and the farmhouse now houses temporary Council offices. At first glance it would seem to be a modern building but in fact part of it dates from the time when this was the Communal site of RAF Rackheath during WW2, when it was the Tailors, Barbers and Shoemakers shop (building 193). The original building has since been modified, encased in brick and converted into a considerably extended private dwelling house.
RAF Rackheath (USAAF Station 145)
Rackheath aerodrome was built by John Laing & Son Ltd on the estate of Sir Edward Stracy of Rackheath Hall. Built to the specifications of a Class-A heavy bomber airfield it was used by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). The station opened in March 1944 and was designated USAAF Station 145. The station became the home of the 467th Bombardment Group (Heavy), the third group in the 96th Combat Wing, Second Bombardment Division (later Air Division) of the Eighth Air Force of the United States Strategic Air Forces in Europe (USSTAF).
