458th Bombardment Group at Horsham St Faith

Horsham St Faith Airfield (Station 123)

Horsham St Faith was originally an airdrome for the RAF.

It was home to the 56th Fighter Group from April to July 1943 and the base for the 458th Bomb Group from January 1944 to June 1945.

The local council bought the site in 1967 after the departure of the RAF and it became a regional airport and industrial estate.

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 (now Norwich Airport) lies four miles north of the city centre to the east of the A140 road to Cromer.
