Work started here in the mid 1930's building the first paved runway in Lincolnshire. Which was camouflaged after completion. The airfield finally opened in August 1938 and was known as N01 Air Armament School of 25 Group of Training Command.
During WWii the base was home to a number of squadrons.
There was a rumour that a small selection of Luftwaffe advanced fighter jets were stored here, I guess to study the German jets to understand their technology.
In 1944 the school was renamed The Empire Central Armament School, later in the year it changed again to Empire Air Armaments School.
In July 1949 the RAF Flying College was formed here.
The Station closed 31st March 1974. Surely the building seen here has been in use previous to the closure but I am unsure of its use.
Most of the buildings here have been repurposed and I believe a small amount have been demolished.
