44th Bombardment Group at Shipdham
Shipdham Airfield (Station 115)
Shipdham was the first US heavy bomber base in Norfolk.
It was also continuous host to the B-24 Liberators longer than any other Eighth Air Force combat airfield in Britain.
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 is situated just to the east of Shipdham village.
The turning for the site is on the main Dereham to Watton Road, just before the King's Café (formerly the King’s Head pub).
The airfield is about five or six miles south of East Dereham, which is on the main A47 road from Norwich.
