It was wonderful to welcome The Duke of Gloucester to our World War 1 Aerodrome near Maldon last week. He was genuinely interested in the work of our fantastic volunteers – who toiled almost around the clock to get our new museum ready for His Royal Highness to open!
It’s Springtime at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome, the birds are singing, our dedicated team of volunteers is in great spirits, and the site is looking shipshape after the hard graft of winter.
Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome CEO Ian Flint shares what he has been up to since joining the team three months ago.
Iain Standen, CEO of Bletchley Park, the home of military intelligence for over a century, kindly wrote this piece about Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome for his Historic Musings blog. One hundred years ago a new threat to the United Kingdom was forcing the Government to introduce new measures to defend the country.
From early 1915 German airships had been attacking and, whilst the casualties were very low compared to those that would be experienced in the ‘Blitz’ of the Second World War, this new form of warfare was causing alarm and fear amongst the population.
The team at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome are pleased to reveal our brand new website. We hope you enjoy the new look and feel! Keep checking back for regular updates on our conservation, news and events.
We worked with the multi-discipline team at Mosaic PR & Digital based in Colchester to design and develop the site designed to drive visitors firstly to the website, and then to the Aerodrome for special events and general visits
