RAF Abbots Bromley is a former Royal Air Force Relief Landing Ground (RLG)[2] located 0.7 miles (1.1 km) north-west of the village of Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire. The airfield opened during 1940 and closed on 31 March 1949[1] being the satellite of RAF Burnaston.[3]

Based unitsEdit

The airfield was also used after the Second World War for storing ammunition.[4]

Current useEdit

There is currently not much of the original site left partly because of the fact it had grass runways[1] and partly due to the period of time elapsed however a guard house and a single Robin hangar remain[4] with part of the site becoming a chicken farm.[3]
