About 24 km northwest of the city of Norwich, in north Norfolk, England, lies the abandoned remains of RAF Langham, a former Royal Air Force base. Established in 1940 as an emergency landing ground, it soon became a satellite station for the larger RAF Bircham Newton and later, a station in its own right. Being located close to the North Sea, it became home to one of the RAF’s Coastal Command Strike Wings, tasked with striking German ships. Now encroached upon by a grass field, a few broken buildings, a concrete airstrip and a mysterious black concrete dome are all that remains of RAF Langham.

Until a few years ago, nobody knew what the dome was used for. Some thought it was used for night navigation training by projecting stars on the dome. Others thought it was used as a torpedo-attack trainer. Some even suggested that it was built by Bernard Matthew’s poultry farm to rear turkeys.
