Stow Maries Aerodrome is a Great War Aerodrome set in the rural Essex countryside. The Aerodrome was in use from 1916 to 1919 as a home defence station in the war against Zeppelin and German aeroplane raids. It has many of its original buildings in situ which are currently undergoing restoration to bring the site back to its 1918 appearance.
Visitors should assemble at the quayside at Maldon from 10.00am, where there are photo opportunities. Lunch will be at The Queen's Head, Maldon (Post Code CM9 5HN) at 11.00am. Please indicate your interest to the organiser and also let him know if you would be joining the group for lunch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org a week in advance. Those members going straight to the airfield should arrive by 12.30pm for an introductory talk by one of the aerodrome volunteers, Roger Smith.
