RAF Defford Museum
A secret airfield in WW2 where airborne radar systems were developed and tested is another important period in the long and varied history of Croome.
Tucked away in part of the wartime RAF Sick Quarters, the RAF Defford Museum tells the intriguing stories of the people and aircraft involved with technology that helped to win the Battle of the Atlantic, provided accurate navigation in support of Bomber Command and allowed the world’s first automatic landing of a Defford aircraft close to Croome Park.
Our volunteers are keen to share these stories with visitors and to hear the tales that visitors bring to us. If you are interested in the history of World War 2 and the people who contributed so much to the Allied victory, this may be the place for you to volunteer.
