Rougham Airfield

Rougham Airfield came into existence in 1942 when it was constructed as a bomber base.

It was occupied by the United States Airforce from then until the end of the war in 1945. The control tower has been made into a museum which preserves the history of the base. The museum is open for visitors on certain days and as well worth going to see.

The airfield still retains one of its original runways as a grass runway and is open to the public. If you wish to fly into Rougham prior permission is required (PPR) and this should be done via Skyward Flight Training who operate the airfield.

Aircraft storage and hangarage are available to rent, please contact the estate office for further information.
