View Full Version : New and interested in Charmy Down
I'm local to Charmy Down and interested to know more about the service history of the airfield beyond the overview stuff found on most sites. Any details, maps or pictures would be most welcome.
An interesting airfield with lots left to see. Many fighter 'E' pens, the Battle Headquarters, Control Tower (Watch Office), Shooting-in Butt, Pillboxes etc.
One of the few airfields for which I have been unable to locate any form of ammunition storage.
Actual service history is out of my expertise but I'm sure our AiX members will be able to give you some pointers.
There is a thread on Charmy Down here;
Welcome to the forum too!
I have just updated my pages on RAF Charmy Down (http://www.atlantikwall.co.uk/atlantikwall/Somerset/charmy_down01/html/page01.htm)as Peter say's there is a lot to see and also a Post war Rotor radar site, just watch out for the lady in the caravan.
