Future of Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome secured


15.10.13

Thanks to a £1.5 million grant from National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF), Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome Trust has secured Europe’s only remaining unaltered First World War Aerodrome – Stow Maries in Purleigh, near Maldon, Essex.

Alongside the grant from NHMF, additional support was also obtained from Essex County Council, Maldon District Council and English Heritage.

The purchase of the site secures the long-term future of the aerodrome and paves the way towards the phased on-going restoration of the Stow Maries Aerodrome back to its former glory.
