Guided walk to RAF Friston - Operation Jubilee, Spitfires and Spies
A walk to the former RAF Friston WW2 airfield: 80 years ago this weekend its Spitfires supported the Dieppe Raid
- Booking essential
- Admission applies
A guided 4 mile walk from Crowlink car park to the site of the former RAF Friston, the base for Spitfires supporting the Dieppe raid, eighty years this weekend, and an emergency landing field for damaged Lancaster and B17 bombers. Secluded and out-of-the-way, from here RAF Lysanders flew SOE agents to France and the first Griffon-engine Spitfire, then top secret, entered service. The walk will last about two hours with a few hills: for the moderately fit.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
