RAF Defford guided walk
Join our tour guide who will show you where during the Second World War, a substantial part of Croome Park was requisitioned for the building of a large military airfield, known as RAF Defford.
Join one of our guided RAF Walks
The RAF Guided Walks will start at 11am, departing from the Visitor Centre and returning around 1pm.
These walks are very popular so booking is essential - tickets available at reception or phone 01905 371006 (please note numbers limited to 25) Sturdy walking shoes are advised.
This walk highlights points of interest in Croome’s park that relate to the top-secret airbase which was home to Airborne Radar testing and development during the Second World War and the early years of the Cold War. The walk takes in key points of interest around the park including views across the airfield and the crash site of a Wellington bomber.
Retrace their steps with our walks booklet
The footsteps of wartime personnel are followed in a RAF Defford walks booklet (£2.50 available from reception). Discover for yourself where the secret Second World War airbase once stood on a 2.8 mile walk around the park .
