Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


In January 2011, English Heritage’s Archaeological Survey and Investigation team (Cambridge) carried out a desk based assessment of RAF Stanbridge. RAF Stanbridge was constructed in 1939 to act as the RAF’s main wireless receiving station for all overseas traffic. By the 1980s, the station housed the RAF’s main logistics computer which controlled all overseas operations. Currently, part of RAF Stanbridge is on the Defence Estate’s disposal list.
