(HERITAGE OPEN DAYS 2010) RAF Holmpton will be
holding a special FREE visit on the morning of

Our very special guest this year is Professor Nigel
Butterworth, who was the Government's Chief Advisor
(Emergency Planning) during the 1980's.
Professor Butterworth was the
person directly responsible for a huge number of
Bunker Rebuilds and Refurbishments. Including the
improvement of most of the ROC Group Controls, the
building of some new RGHQ's at Chilmark, Cultybraggan
and Crowborough, and the refurbishment of Hack Green,
Skendleby and other sites.
He was also responsible for the major builds and rebuilds
at Naphill, Daws Hill, RAF Holmpton etc.
The professor will be giving an illustrated talk (film & slides)
and there will also be a walk through parts of RAF Holmpton
which have never been open/seen before by visitors.
