Temporary Closure

It is with regret that due to the coronavirus COVID-19 situation in the UK and current government guidelines, in the best interests of our visitors and volunteers, we have taken the decision to temporarily close the Control Tower Museum.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will release updates on our website and social media about re-opening when circumstances permit.

Experience

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….

Enjoy the personal testimonies and local stories of the wartime in Carew from two of our very active members now in their 80’s – Both were in secondary school in 1939!

We are open year round to school and group visits by prior booking.
