RAF Wombleton - North Yorkshire


I am interested in finding anyone who can give an insight or shed some information on  RAF Wombleton In North Yorkshire.

A good few years back I stayed at the campsite on the paremeter of the airfield and while out walking one evening discovered this amazing place. I didn't even know it existed until I stood on the main runway and the penny dropped as to where I was. I don't know what it was, or what it is but I am awestruck by this place.

Since, I have researched the formal facts about the airfield but I would like to try and find some first hand experience of it. I know the layout, the work that was undertaken there but I would love to try and marry this with actualy people who were based there.

I know this is a long shot as time is passing by but any help however small would be appreciated.



Hi Does any one now what this building was used for, during the war. its location is in a field between Wombleton Grange and Wombleton airfield? 



Many Thanks






With regard to your enquiry re the building closest to Wombleton Grange it was a picket post- security hut. It also doubled up as a changing room as the field it was in was the station sports field. Post war it was used to store agricultural equipment. In the early 1960's it was used by 2 enterprising local boys to house their collection of rabbits, Dutch Butterflies, fine creatures !
