Wattisham Station Heritage are a group of around 20 like minded men and women of all ages and from all walks of life. Our aim is to restore, preserve and exhibit the long and distinguished history of Wattisham Flying Station, formally RAF Wattisham and to inform and educate future generations.
Our small committee comprises civilians, former servicemen, also personnel who are currently serving. Although we operate with the full support of Wattisham Flying Station we are autonomous and rely on donations from the general public to survive.
Not only do we warmly welcome visitors to our open Sunday afternoons, but we are always delighted to organise private visits from clubs, schools and organisations, also Squadron Associations, and of course Wattisham veterans and their families from all over the world.
We are also proud to help provide a link with Wattisham Flying Station and the Suffolk community, the Station is part of our local history having been in existence since 1939. Networking with other museums in East Anglia and beyond is important to us, it is good to share knowledge and exhibits for the future.
We are continually seeking all sorts of fresh exhibits, and regularly refresh the layouts. If you have an item you wish to loan or donate to the museum we will be pleased to hear from you, it could be anything from a photograph, an old letter, a uniform, or part (or all of!) an aircraft.
