A Heritage Open Day at Alconbury Weald, had a huge range of activities. 

From Lindy Hop dancing, to big band music to get people “in the mood” and food and drink for visitors to enjoy at the newly-opened Bohemia bistro and bar in the refurbished Second World War listed Watch Office.

A key part of the day was a series of tours to the Cold War Avionics Building which are normally closed.

Tickets for the tours were snapped up within hours of the them being announced and over 100 people were given a glimpse of the site’s hidden Cold War history.   

Rachel Arnold from Urban&Civic said: “It was a great day, and we are so grateful to all the groups and partners who helped us bring the site’s rich heritage to life over the course of the day.”
