July has been a busy old month here at WW2 Nation and we decided to end it in the same way we had started it, with another filming trip. This time we returned to what is fast becoming one of our favourite haunts, Lincolnshire’s Bomber County.
Staying at the historical Petwood Hotel – our HQ for the weekend – we explored the abandoned remains of the communal site of Bomber Command’s former airfield, RAF Woodhall Spa. We also ventured towards the city of Lincoln to visit the incredibly moving ‘Spire’ Memorial of the International Bomber Command Centre that overlooks the Cathedral.
Thanks for reading, we hope you found it of interest. The Vlog of this recent trip exploring more of Bomber County will be available to watch shortly.
Also a huge thank you to Emma, Elaine and the rest of the team at the Petwood Hotel, as well as Nicky, Sue and Peter from the International Bomber Command Centre for making it a fantastic weekend.
