Yesterday I mentioned the Chapel at Hethel - and there was some interest expressed - so here it is.
The museum is purely run by volunteers and is very 'belt and braces' - but all the more poignant for it IMHO.
The site is a little way away from the actual airfield and was formerly the station gynasium, as well as chapel.
After the war the buildings were used by a farm on the site - and the murals in the chapel were overpainted. These were re-discovered when someone pointed out there looked like there was something under the paint - and were subsequently restored (at one point I believe it was going to be demolished):
The museum has quite a number of artifacts on display - many donated by Lotus Cars as they were found (mainly in the Control Tower area) when Lotus took over the airfield in 1966.
Not far away (you don't have to go far in this area to come across another wartime airfield) there is the airfield at Old Buckenham - part of this is still in use for light aircraft and the occasional warbird - there is a memorial there too - which, again, some of you might like to see:
