RAF Foulsham
Work commenced in 1941 on this RAF airfield; it had three concrete runways, 37 hardstandings and nine large hangars. During the early 1950s it was used by USAF ground units and it was still reasonably intact until the 1980s. One of the hangars has since been used to hold bulk grain for an agricultural merchant; another is used by the Department of the Environment to store equipment and yet another by a warehousing company. The control tower has long since been demolished but portions of the perimeter track and sections of some of the runways are still in place. See also: LinkExternal link
