RAF buildings beside the road
RAF buildings beside the road
A prefabricated concrete building can be seen adjoining the overgrown Nissen hut which would have provided accommodation for the ground crew which serviced aircraft on the dispersals by day and night and in all weather. A sentry hut > LinkExternal link still stands beside a track across the road from here. The track leads to a spectacle dispersal, now used for farm storage but used for parking aircraft when RAF Deopham Green was an active airfield during WW2.
RAF Deopham Green (USAAF Station 142)
RAF Deopham Green is a former World War II aerodrome, built in 1942/43 and located near the hamlet of Deopham Green. Opened in 1944, the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) Eighth Air Force 452nd Bombardment Group (Heavy). After the war the field was handed back to RAF Maintenance Command and public roads that had been closed during construction were re-opened. The airfield was closed in 1948 with most of the buildings torn down and the land returned to agricultural use. Many of the runways and taxiways of the old airfield remain.
