Halesworth Airfield Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Halesworth Airfield had a very short life; it was operational for only four years, from 1942 until 1946. It was used mainly as a US Air Force base and was home to both the 56th Fighter Group and the 489th Bomb Group.
Towards the tail end of WWII Halesworth served as a training base and a rescue station. The airbase had three runways and two hangars, and at its height, it housed 3000 personnel.
The museum has limited opening hours - usually Sunday afternoons from spring to autumn, but please check the official website before making travel plans.
