Brunton Airfield (1942 - 2004)


Brunton Airfield was established in 1942 as a satellite airfield for RAF Milfield, and used for training fighter pilots in World War 2. It was located about 8 miles north of Alnwick, between the hamlets of Brunton and Tughall in Northumberland. After the war it was used as a civil airfield and was home to the Borders Parachute Centre. The airfield closed in 2004, but the runways can still be seen (see Aerial View, link above). The ramains of the airfield are on the 'Local List' of non-designated Heritage Assets of Local Importance for Bamburgh, Seahouses and Beadnell.
