The RAF Coltishall Heritage Centre tells the story of the only Battle of Britain Station that remained a fighter station throughout its 66 year life.
Housed in the former Main Guardroom, the RAF Coltishall Heritage Centre is a project of the RAF Station Coltishall Heritage Trust (Registered Charity No 1176736), set up from a long standing working group in 2018. Current trustees are all former station personnel. The Trust has had no grant funding and relies on donations from supporters and visitors. Entrance is free and the Heritage Centre is open to the public and organised groups on Thursdays and Sundays from the beginning of April to the end of October with organised group visits by arrangement in the Winter. Visits can include guided tours around the former stations heritage assets.
The Heritage Centre exhibition rooms begin with the Spitfires and Hurricanes of the Battle of Britain through to the fast jets including the Jaguar, the type that served the longest on this much respected station. In addition, the RAF Coltishall Heritage Centre has a unique display of WW2 and Jaguar airborne photo reconnaissance equipment and the associated wet film and digital ground image exploitation systems.
The Trust is further developing the displays in and around the Heritage Centre with plans to bring a Jaguar aircraft back to the site well underway. The Trust is a member of the East Anglian Aviation Heritage Network. The Heritage Centre is fully accessible and has facilities for disabled visitors and is fully supported by Norfolk County Council and the site managers Hethel Innovation Ltd.
