D-Day + 70

Our opening event in 2014...

70 years ago, as Operation Overlord took to the sea and skies on ‘D-Day’, RAF North Creake's first operation took off. The role of this 199 Squadron's mission was to convince those watching German radar that the invasion was to happen at Calais rather than at Normandy by registering erroneous signals on their screens to divert attention from the main invasion fleet. This involved flying a few feet above The English Channel dropping tin foil (codenamed ‘window’) to mimic invasion craft. Thankfully, for the landing troops and for posterity, they were believed.

We are very proud to live in such an important piece of history and want to share our home and garden with you. Many friends are involving themselves in this celebration and we’re very pleased to announce that we will have, the Little Vintage Lover Fair joining us in the Nissen hut with stalls selling lots of vintage loveliness (from the 20s - 70s), setting the scene in the tower we have The Swinging Detective DJ to swoon you. There will also be refreshments, tours of the tower. Families are very welcome and entrance is free.
