Langham Dome was a state-of-the-art AA (anti-aircraft) gunnery trainer. Standing 25 ft tall and some 40 ft wide, its wartime use was as a training facility for anti-aircraft gunners in ground-to-air anti-aircraft defence. Gunners were schooled in accuracy using ground-breaking stop-frame film technology, developed in 1940, which ‘simulated’ air attacks by projecting images of enemy aircraft onto the interior walls of the Dome. Langham Dome is one of only six such WW2 gunnery trainers left in existence in 2014, although 40 were built.
