Deopham Green in Norfolk opened in 1944 and was host to the USAAF 452nd Bombardment Group (Heavy) and their B-17s. Although the airfield was closed by 1948 there are still a handful of original buildings, one or two which have been given a new lease of life but others whose days look numbered. It is also quite easy to trace taxiways and runways with a public road running most of the length of the main runway although remaining concrete is clearly being lifted. The airfield is therefore gradually disappearingĀ but there is a memorial on the remnants of one of the runways as I saw a couple of days ago.
