Last year, Ian Rotherham, from the Landscape Heritage Research Foundation gave a presentation to the Civic Society about Norton’s Flying Legacy.
The project has recently been awarded Heritage Lottery funding to allow it to continue. The new project entitled ‘From RFC Airfield to City Suburb’ will run for fifteen months and will delve further into the history of the WWI Aeroplane Repair Depot at Norton and inter-war aviation. The launch is on Tuesday 30th July and an invitation is extended to Civic Society members.
