RAF building in garden
RAF building in garden
This is one of the few buildings surviving from the time when RAF Little Snoring was an active airfield during WW2. It used to be an ablutions (showers and toilets) block on a campsite occupied by the WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force), which has long since been built over by housing. (Accessed by kind permission of the owners.)
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
