Public footpath on Horham airfield
Considering the width of this farm track it is difficult to believe that during WW2 this used to be one of the runways of RAF Horham.
RAF Horham (USAAF Station 119)

RAF Horham is located to the south-east of Eye and straddles the parishes of Denham, Horham, Redlingfield and Hoxne. Built for the Royal Air Force (RAF) it was one of the earliest heavy bomber bases opened in East Anglia. In 1942, the base was handed over to the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) and designated Station 119. The aerodrome's history and a number of original buildings are preserved at two local museums - the 95th Bomb Group Hospital Museum > LinkExternal link and the nearby 95th Bomb Group Museum > LinkExternal link.
