Middle Wood, Upper Billingford
This used to be the USAAF Technical Site. Nothing much has survived here. During the war, RAF Thorpe Abbotts (USAAF station 139) was home to airmen of the 100th Bomb Group. There used to be some seventy such sites spread across East Anglia, which for two years during World War II had become launch pads for USAAF's bombing raids into occupied Europe. Each airfield was home to 2000-3000 airmen, most of them volunteers. These sites became known as 'The Fields of Little America' - this is one of them. The 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum, dedicated to the USAAF's famous 'Bloody Hundredth' Bomb Group of WWII, is housed in the original airfield control tower > Link near Thorpe Abbotts: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
