445th Bombardment Group at Tibenham
Tibenham Airfield (Station 124)
Tibenham was first used for military aviation purposes during the First World War.
This may be why, when the Air Ministry was seeking airfield sites in the early 1940s, its name cropped up.
The site was found to be highly suitable and construction work began at Tibenham in 1941.
The airfield became home to the 445th Bomb Group, who were stationed there from November 1943 until May 1945.
All sites are now private property and you will need permission before you visit.
The library has information on some base contacts and with their permission can pass this onto you. The Library itself is unable to organise site visits.
The airfield lies to the north of the B1134 Pulham Market to New Buckenham road.
It is just to the east of Tibenham village, which is about 13 miles south-southwest of Norwich.
