Excavation site in Whin Close
One of the buildings on the WW1 Sedgeford aerodrome site excavated by SHARP, the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project - a long-term archaeological research project, whose primary objective is the investigation of the entire range of human settlement and land use in the Norfolk parish of Sedgeford.
RAF Sedgeford
RAF Sedgeford was opened in 1915 and used by the Royal Naval Air Force (RNAF) and the Royal Flying Corps (RFC), to be amalgamated in 1918 into the Royal Air Force (RAF), for the duration of WW1. In 1921, the land occupied by the aerodrome was sold and it soon returned to agriculture. In 1940 the few remaining buildings formed part of a decoy airfield created by the RAF for the protection of the nearby aerodrome at Bircham Newton. The site was closed for good in August 1942.
