Lavenham was the home of the 487th Bomb Group of the 8th USAAF, Station 137.
The Swan Hotel was the local 'watering hole' for the men on the base. Some of their signatures can still be seen in the Airmen's Bar. Lavenham Tourist Information Centre has a collection of photo's, kindly sent to us by the veterans.
We have guided walks to the Airfield three times a year, by kind permission of the farmers on whose land the airfield sits.
