WW2 air raid shelter
WW2 air raid shelter
The owners think that this was the location of the station's Sick quarters when RAF Little Snoring was an active airfield during WW2, but according to the official site plan the Hospital was located at the northern end of Kettlestone Road and the WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) occupied what is now Crossways Caravan Park. The old concreted tracks and hut bases are still in place. The concreted tracks and hut bases are still in place > LinkExternal link. What most of the campers probably won't know is that the overgrown hump depicted here is an air raid shelter which would seem to still be in place albeit inaccessible.
RAF Little Snoring
RAF Little Snoring was a WW2 RAF heavy bomber base, opened in 1943 and used by 100 Group. After 1945 it was used first for the storage of aircraft and then for maintenance; it became redundant as a military site in the late 1950s. At present, three of the four hangars are used for private aircraft storage and the fourth is used for storage, maintenance and sale of small private aircraft. An adjoining smaller building is used by the flying club. The surrounding land is in agricultural use. The tower is now derelict but the airfield remains open for general aviation and part of the main runway is still in use. See also: LinkExternal link
