Join our tour guide who will show you where, during the Second World War, a substantial part of Croome Park was requisitioned for the building of a large military airfield, known as RAF Defford. Wartime locations are highlighted and events that changed the 18th century 'Capability' Brown landscape revealed. Secrets are waiting to be told along the route as this was no ordinary airfield.
