This is an interesting walk as it takes you beside the old airfield where in the Second World War the American 44th Bomb Group was stationed. B24 Liberators flew their first mission from here in November 1942 and the last flight was in 1945. There were 342 missions, 153 planes lost and 330 enemy planes destroyed. You can fly in an autogyro from here and one was taking off the day we did the walk. The museum at the airfield is planning to expand and if you do this walk on weekends you can have refreshments at the museum, in the summer-time, 9am to 8pm, winter time 9am to the early afternoon or dusk. There are pubs in Shipdham where food can be obtained.
