It opened in 1940 as part of 1 Group as a satellite of RAF Hemswell. In May 1942 300 Squadron with Wellingtons arrived and stayed until January 1943. It was replaced by 199 Squadron, also with Wellingtons until June 1943, when 300 Squadron returned and was joined briefly by 305 Squadron from June to September 1943. 300 Squadron moved out in March 1944. For the rest of 1944 the station was home to bomber defence training units. The station was re-named RAF Cammeringham in November 1944 but flying ceased in January 1945.
