RAF North Witham
Twyford Wood, immediately east of the A1, and south of the A151, about eight miles south of Grantham.
1961 - 1962
Although commissioned as an RAF base in 1943, North Witham served as a station for US forces for much of the War.
In 1945 it was returned to RAF control, and closed in 1956. For two years, from 1961 – 1962, it served as a test facility for BRM after the company’s former base at Folkingham was re-opened by the RAF as a base for the Thor Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile.
Today the site is known as Twyford Wood. It is owned and maintained by the Forestry Commission as an ancient woodland site.
