Seething Airfield is a privately owned airfield in Norfolk situated south east of Norwich and just a few miles from the east coast.
Now home to a thriving flying club, the airfield was constructed as a base for Liberator bombers for the USAF 448th Bomb Group. You can still catch tantalising glimpses of those days on the airfield today.
CONTROL TOWER MUSEUM: The former RAF Seething's rich history is captured in the iconic control tower of the airbase which is now home to a fine museum charting the life and work of those who worked there during the War years. The Control Tower is open the first Sunday of each month from May to October inclusive.
