Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome is a unique and historically significant site located in Essex, England. Perched on a small rise overlooking the small village and civil parish of Stow Maries, this aerodrome holds a special place in aviation history as one of the few remaining First World War aerodromes that are still operational today.

Originally established in 1916 during the First World War, Stow Maries Aerodrome played a crucial role in the defense of London against German air raids. It served as a home for Royal Flying Corps (RFC) and later Royal Air Force (RAF) squadrons, housing both pilots and ground crew. The aerodrome was strategically positioned to intercept and engage enemy aircraft on their way to bomb London.

One of the remarkable features of Stow Maries is its well-preserved collection of First World War-era buildings, including hangars, officer’s mess, and other support structures. These buildings offer visitors a tangible connection to the past, allowing them to step back in time and experience the life of those who served during the Great War.

The aerodrome has undergone extensive restoration efforts to bring it back to its original condition, providing an authentic glimpse into the history of early aviation. Visitors can explore the various exhibits, displays, and aircraft on-site, gaining insights into the challenges faced by aviators during First World War.

Stow Maries Aerodrome not only serves as a museum and historical site but also hosts events, air shows, and educational programs throughout the year. These activities aim to preserve and share the rich aviation heritage while honouring the contributions of those who served at this important airfield.

For aviation enthusiasts, history buffs, and anyone interested in the legacy of early air warfare, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome offers a captivating and immersive experience that brings the past to life. It stands as a testament to the bravery and ingenuity of the individuals who played a vital role in shaping the course of aviation history during a pivotal period in the 20th century.
