Information about RAF Wyton
The area around Wyton has been associated with aviation for over 90 years – a period that almost embraces the entire history of aviation. Several aviation milestones have been recorded from RAF Wyton. The first sortie of WW2 took off from here as well as the first aircraft of the 1000 bomber raids on Germany. The legendary Pathfinder Force was formed here and Wyton aircraft took part in the last Bomber Command Raid on Germany. 1981 marked the retirement from Wyton of the Royal Air Forces last serving Spitfire pilot.
The picture postcard village of Houghton & Wyton is 4 miles away and is itself steeped in history, the village has one of the oldest working mills in the country and regularly sells the flour it produces. There are plenty of ramblers’ routes that start from the village, most of which are suitable for children.
We have two towns nearby, St Ives is 5 miles distance from the station and Huntingdon is 7 miles away. Both towns have a good selection of shops and banks with Huntingdon being the slightly larger of the two. Our nearest major city is Peterborough which is easily reached via the A1 or by using the regular train service from Huntingdon.
