Nr High Green,
Join our tour guide who will show you where in 1940, a substantial part of Croome Park was requisitioned for the building of a new airfield, known as RAF Defford. The RAF Walk at Croome reveals the way in which this changed the18th century landscape created by ‘Capability’ Brown.
There are also secrets waiting to be told along the route, for this was no ordinary airfield - radar was tested here and helped to win World War II.
