Donations to Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre for general upkeep of museum buildings, grounds and exhibits. The museum is run by Thorpe Camp Visitors Centers Volunteer's,  and is a non-profit making registered charity. It costs many thousands of pounds to run the museum each year and we rely entirely on revenue raised from memberships, donations, entry fees and shop sales. Your donation will ensure that we can continue to maintain this important piece of military and aviation history and continue to honour the memory of all those that served with all four Squadrons of RAF Woodhall Spa and the general Lincolnshire life.

The Centre was formerly part of No.1 Communal Site, RAF Woodhall Spa, and was built in 1940, with a planned life span of only 10 years!  The site included the Officers and Sergeants Mess, Airmen's Dining Halls and the NAAFI building, together with Ration Store, Latrines and Ablution Block.  Only the Airmen's Dining Halls, the NAAFI, Ablution Block and Ration Store are within the Centre's boundary.

The Thorpe Camp Preservation Group established the Visitor Centre in 1988 to commemorate those Airmen who flew from the airfield in World War II.

  97, 619, 617 (Dambusters) and 627 Squadrons were based at RAF Woodhall Spa.
