Tragically 350 young men died whilst serving and flying from the airfield and the Museum Association wants to continue to ensure their sacrifices and the contribution made by everyone at the airfield is remembered.
Restoration work on the tower continues to this day. An example of this is the project to rebuild the weather observatory. In wartime photographs, a greenhouse structure can be seen on top of the tower. This was the weather observatory. The team researched its size, materials, colours to create what can be seen today. Inside the tower, you will find a variety of exhibits and displays illustrating what life was like at Seething airfield during the wartime years.
These are the People We Honour and Remember
