Located in the old Watch Office, RAF Wickenby Memorial Museum is dedicated to honour the servicemen who were based at Wickenby during WWII, especially the 1,143 who never returned from their missions.
Since its opening in the 1990s, the museum has gone from strength to strength and has aquired many interesting artefacts related to RAF Wickenby, including a large number of photographs which include Post War Wickenby, Off Duty Wickenby, the Women’s Auxilliary Air Force, The Lancaster and Ground Crew.
Amongst the many artefacts on display are uniforms, medals, a Bomb Aimer’s panel and bomb sight, radio and transmitter, Log Books & also the original Ops Board which currently features the raid to Mailly le Camp on 3 May 1944 when Wickenby lost 7 out of 27 aircraft. The Museum looks out over two of Wickenby’s original runways, 03/21 & 16/34 which are still used today.
Please note that there is regretfully no disabled access up the stairs to the old Watch Office.
Wickenby's Cafe 12 is also located on the ground floor of the Watch Tower and is normally open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm. Please check their website before visiting.
