Former Stow Maries Airfield, Flambirds Farm, Stow Maries, Cold Norton - Maldon

Twenty-four surviving buildings of a World War I Royal Flying Corps airfield; the largest known surviving group of this kind, now owned by a Trust, who are building up a collection of flying (replica) WWI aircraft and operate the site as an active aerodrome for these and visiting private aircraft. The National Lottery Heritage Fund have offered a grant towards the improvement of visitor facilities. Repairs are in progress or have been completed to many of the buildings with grants from WREN, Historic England, and other sources, but some buildings still await repair.
