North Pickenham Airfield (Station 143)

This airfield was home to the 492nd Bomb Group from April 1944 to August 1944.

It then became the base of the 491st Bomb Group from August 1944 to July 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 site is two miles south-east of Swaffham.

It's between the B1077 road to Watton and the Swaffham-North Pickenham road.
