About the reserve

RAF Woodhall Spa saw many brave squadrons defend Britain during World War 2, including the famous 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron, which flew the Avro Lancaster bomber. In recent years, it has been quarried for sand and gravel.

As a nature reserve Woodhall Spa Airfield will become a haven for wildlife and a monument to our aviation heritage, a place where visitors can share in the unique and peaceful atmosphere of this former airfield and walk along the former runway. Around the nature reserve the air will fill with the songs of skylarks and the open skies will see birds of prey soaring where military aircraft once flew.

The purchase of the former airfield is part of the Wildlife Trusts aspiration to create a Living Landscape of larger, connected wildlife sites with improved access for people. It is adjacent to existing nature reserves from which wildlife is already expanding.

Please visit our main Woodhall Spa Airfield page for further information.

Please note: The reserve has a locked pedestrian gate for security. You will need an access code to enter the reserve. Please contact us during office hours on 01507 526667 for the access code.
