The Control Tower Rougham Industrial Estate
Bury St.Edmunds
IP30 9XA

Rougham Airfield is situated a couple of miles east of Bury St Edmunds, UK and was home to the USAAF 322nd and 94th Bomb Groups during the Second World War. This airfield is one of the few wartime bases to retain its Control Tower into current times. The RTA was formed by a group of local people in July 1993 with the aim of restoring the Control Tower to its original condition. The Association became a registered charity in 1998. Work is now well advanced and the initial objective has evolved into a project dedicated to providing a site of living history for the education and entertainment of present and future generations of the public. With a recently negotiated lease from Rougham Estate Farms of Ninety Nine years, we are in a healthy position to expand and preserve the museum, the memorial and the memory.
