As an ex-RAFster, I thought I'd seen it all, but the Dome at RAF Langham came as a real and very interesting surprise. At first, I thought the £5 entry fee was a little on the high side for such a sma... read more »

Fascinating place - well presented history of how WWII impacted on the local area, makes you see outside through new eyes.
Impressive restoration of a WWII training dome, complete with films projected onto the interior. The kids could practice shooting down enemy aircraft, dress up as RAF pilots, and tap out some morse code. Worth a visit if in the area at £5 adult and free for the kids.
Just a brief note to add to the sketchy comments made on the questionnaire sheet following my visit to the Dome earlier today. Obviously I knew about the Dome from the various military books in which it is mentioned and I have driven past it many times and watched with interest as it was restored over the past few months, but I never knew its true purpose. I took my five-year-old grandson, who is somewhat besotted with matters relating to World War II and after the visit his reaction was “Epic!” From an adult’s point of view I was fascinated by the various displays, but I was particularly impressed by their “child-friendly” nature. I thought it was a very clever touch to include a wardrobe of child-sized uniforms for children to try on. I also liked the thoughtful way that the gun could be raised or lowered to suit the size of the child who was operating it. It really was an inspiration to restore the building in this way and to provide something that is so unique, yet such an important part of our heritage. I remember that the questionnaire asked for thoughts about additions. At present I think it is fine as it is, but perhaps in the future, if the Dome achieves the success it deserves, maybe space could be created for a small bookshop. The educational potential could also be enhanced by the production of pupils’ work sheets, but that is all for future consideration. For now, congratulations on a splendid community effort.
