This secret airbase was where Radar was put into the aircraft of the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) and tested and developed to help win the war. Walking round the various points will give the walker an idea of the scale of the operation. Led by an RAF Defford Museum Volunteer telling stories of the various sites around the airfield and the grounds, the walk will take approximately 2 hours, starting and finishing at the museum with the opportunity to visit the museum afterwards.
