RAF Henley-on-Thames is a former Royal Air Force grass-strip airfield in Berkshire, England, located near Henley-on-Thames. It was also known by a variety of other names: Cockpole Green, Upper Culham Farm, Crazies Hill, or Crazies Hill Farm.[citation needed]

HistoryEdit

The site was used to assemble and test Supermarine Spitfires and as a Relief Landing Ground for RAF White Waltham and RAF Woodley. It was built in late 1939 and closed in October 1945.[1]

Current useEdit

There is currently little to see on satellite imagery that the airfield existed as the runways were grass.
