Swannington airfield

Swannington airfield, set in the old parkland of Haveringland Hall, was home to Mosquito and Spitfire squadrons during World War Two. Although now mostly ploughed up, portions of runway remain and some buildings, including the rifle range complex. There is also a type 22 concrete pillbox dating to about 1940 which was probably part of a defended roadblock for the A1149.
