Women's History Month Tour
May 21, 2019 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
To commemorate Women’s History Month, join the Kenley Revival Project for a Women at War themed walking tour of Kenley Airfield. Take a 2-mile guided walk around the airfield and discover the fascinating architecture and stories of those who served here.
Find out more about the roles that women took on on the airfield during WW2 including information the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, the women that packed parachutes and operated barrage balloons and female members of the Air Transport Auxiliary.
The event is outdoors and therefore please wear suitable clothing. Surfaces may be uneven and slippery. The route will be a mixture of surfaced path and grass and therefore suitable footwear is also essential.
This will be a 2 hour tour starting at and returning to the Kenley Tribute. The length of the route is approx. 2 miles.
There is no parking available onsite and we would encourage you to travel by public transport (details can be found here). Limited parking is available on Hayes Lane which is closest to the RAF Kenley Tribute where the walk will commence.
There are no toilet or refreshment facilities available.
Always remember that Kenley is an active airfield for gliders, so for your safety remain outside of the yellow line at all times.
Meeting point will be at the RAF Kenley Tribute (nearest entrance for this is off of Hayes Lane).
