489th Bombardment Group at Halesworth
Halesworth Airfield (Station 365)
Halesworth became an American base in May 1943.
Early in July that year the 56th Fighter Group arrived from Horsham St Faith (now home to Norwich Airport).
The unit left for Boxted Airfield in April 1944 and in its place came the 489th Bomb Group.
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 former airfield site, also known as Holton, is about two miles north-east of Halesworth.
It's between the A144 Halesworth to Bungay road and the B1124 Halesworth to Beccles road.
