Event

Wellesbourne at War

Date: 28th Sep 2019
Start Time: 11:00 am
End Time: 3:00 pm

Wellesbourne like many other areas around the country was an RAF base during the second World War. The current airfield and the site now occupied by several industrial units was an operational / training airfield. On at least one occasion it was  also a ‘fall back’ site for aircraft returning from the continent when the conditions in the south prohibited landing. Pictures and maps of the period will form part pof the display.

?The accommodation for the service men plus the cinema etc were where the Dovehouse Estate now stands. This year is the 80th anniversary of the start of WW2. The display etc will recall those distant times but we must remember the many Canadian and other servicemen who perished.

?Guided tours, the mouse trail, films and refreshments in the café along with gifts / souvenirs will also be available.?
