St Mary's church, Horham (memorial)
St Mary's church, Horham (memorial)
St Mary's > LinkExternal link dates mainly from the 14th century and has the oldest ring of eight bells in the world and a piece of 18th century graffiti on the chancel arch reminds the ringers what is due to the Sexton for keeping them in order. This corn doily in the shape of an American bald eagle with two flags in its beak commemorates the men and women from the 95th Bomb Group who were based at RAF Horham during WW2.
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.
