Construction began in 1926 as a grass airfield for use by units using the Holbeach range and it was taken over by Fighter Command to train Hurricane pilots until March 1942. It became the Central Gunnery School in April 1942 and many Bomber Command air gunners, gunnery leaders and gunnery instructors trained here on various types of aircraft. From February 1944 it was used as a satellite by the Oxfords and Harvards of 7 Service Flying Training School at nearby Peterborough until April 1946.
