491st Bombardment Group at Metfield

Remaining buildings

Some Nissen huts and Second World War brick buildings remain on the former airfield site, as well as one bay of most runways.

A massive explosion occurred on the airfield six weeks after the 491st Bomb Group commenced operations at Metfield.

Subsequently the group was relocated to North Pickenham airfield.

The base was then used to house a secret unit engaged in clandestine operations.
