Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome is a unique place, with a unique history. Its story covers 100 years of life comprising feverish excitement interspersed with periods of calm and tranquillity. The aerodrome lies to the east of Chelmsford and west of Maldon, Essex, within an area of gently-rolling farmland. It is the largest known surviving group of RFC buildings on a WWI aerodrome which was not adapted for further military use later in its history. When considered with its growing collection of objects directly related to the site and its activities, a truly unique resource is evident.
This national-level living-history event focussing on the British Armed Forces of the Great War returns in all its glory for its fouth year. From Soldiers to Nurses and Airmen, their uniforms, weaponry, equipment and training, as well as the everyday tasks of the Great War soldier. There will be authentic demonstrations showing various skills which a soldier would have had to acquire to enable him to do his job “in the field”.
Stow Maries historic site also offers an impressive collection of Great War aircraft as well as Museums, Mess and shop. A great educational day for all the family.
We will also be welcoming some fantastic air displays, weather permitting
Tickets will be on sale until sold out.
