Langham Dome Military Museum

Cockthorpe Rd, Langham, Norfolk, NR25 7BP, United Kingdom

The Spitfire is back and we’re ready to welcome you for 2023!

Built in 1942 – 43 on the edge of RAF Langham, this intriguing building utilised innovative technology to train anti-aircraft gunners.

Long before digital virtual reality was invented, moving images projected onto the inside of the Dome taught brave trainees how to shoot down enemy aircraft successfully. Seventy years after the end of World War 2, a visit to the Dome offers a unique opportunity to journey back in time and experience what life was like for those who served at RAF Langham.

Langham Dome, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, is one of only a handful of anti-aircraft gunnery domes left in the UK. In 2013, the North Norfolk Historic Buildings Trust, which owns Langham Dome, was awarded £446,400 by the Heritage Lottery Fund, together with £199,000 by English Heritage and a variety of other generous grants, to open the Langham Dome as a visitor attraction. Our mission is to reveal the significance of the Dome and RAF Langham in the defence of Britain during and after World War II, and to remember the sacrifices made by service personnel.

In early summer 2020, we unveiled our full sized replica silver Spitfire Mk IX, which is dedicated to Richard Younghusband who died in a gunnery training mission at Langham airfield.
