RAF Spanhoe (also known as Harringworth or Wakerley) is a former World War II airfield.
Opened in 1943, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Forces. During the war it was used primarily as a transport airfield. After the war it was closed in late 1945.
The airfield is still active and houses various privately owned light aircraft, though much of the site has been returned to agriculture.
