A wonderful learning experience can be had at Carew Cheriton Control Tower, with visits tailored to the age and type of group involved.
Go back in time to the 1940’s and experience the lovingly restored Control Tower layout as it would have been during the wartime years.
Don a helmet, take cover and sing wartime songs in our reconstructed Stanton Air Raid Shelter, built above ground for easy access by all.
Experience our huge array of exhibits of the era in our museum collection including military uniforms, RAF maps, radio equipment, ration books, Bren gun, Enfield rifle and many, many more….
