Sawston Hall

Military site

Object Number - Document 27993 - Page 44 of the 66th Fighter Wing unit history. Many of the 8th Air Force Groups produced an unofficial unit history in the months after the war...

Sawston Hall was requisitioned for use as the Headquarters of the 66th Fighter Wing, from the Huddleston family. There is graffiti on the top floor from the US occupation and an air-raid shelter in the grounds. It reverted to the Huddleston's at the end of the war and was sold by them in 1982 to a language school and was later sold on.
