Airfield Bomb Store

Back Honeypot Wood, Wendling, Norfolk.

The bomb store for Wendling airfield built in Honeypot Wood.

Wendling was intended as an RAF bomber airfield, but in 1942 was given over to the Americans and became Station 118, the home of the 392 Bombardment Group. The airfield bomb store was located in and around Honeypot Wood which is owned today by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and is open to the public. The concrete roadways of the airfield form the basis for the modern paths and the interior of the wood is dominated by its wartime past, with the earthworks and buildings of the former bomb stores now overgrown by trees.
