History

At the end of WWII the USAAF returned to the USA and the site reverted to the Ministry Of Defence ownership.  It was immediately closed as an operational RAF airfield.  The land was subsequently returned to its original use for farming apart from a few areas.

The 93rd Bomb Group Museum stands on private land owned by the Woodrow family.
