Artist's Description

I was walking my dog through Twyford woods and was intrigued to find this rather substantial strip of concrete right in the heart of the woods. Upon arriving home I did a little investigation and discovered that this is in fact RAF North Witham air base. Built between 1942 & 1943 for Bomber command and subsequently loaned to the American air force, it was used mainly for troop transport during the D-Day landings. Abandoned in 1948 there is nothing here now to commemorate its role in the war effort. Just a strip of concrete and an old control tower hidden away in the woods.
