It opened as part of 4 Group in October 1942 when 77 Squadron moved in with Whitleys but immediately converting to Halifaxes. It operated from the station until May 1944 when it was replaced by 346 Squadron and 347 Squadron, both also with Halifaxes. The site is now partly occupied by The Yorkshire Air Museum.
