Over 60 years after the end of the Second World War, Lincolnshire is still often referred to as the 'Bomber County', by virtue of the number of Bomber Command airfields once situated within its boundaries. The addition of Fighter Command, Coastal Command and United States Army Air Force bases made for a total of around fifty active airfields. This book comprises 20 circular walks centred on the remains of Lincolnshire's Second World War military airfields. Ranging from roughly 4 miles to 11 miles in length, the walks include additional features of interest and are supported by details of airfield history.
David Clark is a retired teacher, living in Lincolnshire. He has published several books on the subject of British battlefields and has researched and explored many wartime airfields throughout the country. He says, "Old military airfields are as much a part of our hetitage as traditional battlefield site and, as such, merit the same level of protection."
