Artefact of the Month!
This horseshoe was found during our Community Archaeology dig last year, of course we know what it is but the question to be asked here is why was it found outside the flight hut over on that side of the airfield? These few ideas have been considered; it could have been found by a pilot or worker and used to play 'horseshoes' round a stake, it could have also been left there from when the fields were full of crops and horses would have been used to help ploughing.
Why do you think it was there?
There are a number of objects we have acquired here at Kenley Revival HQ (Merlewood Estate Office) over the years. Reckon you know what they might be and what they might have been used for? Get in touch with us via our website, Twitter and Facebook to let us know.
Do you have anything relating to RAF Kenley you can share?
We have an amazing online archive where you can upload memories, photographs, documents or links to other online sources which relate to RAF Kenley's history. We rely on the community to help us build what could be the most extensive resource of all things relating to RAF Kenley's Battle of Britain past.
