RAF Wittering

RAF Wittering is one of the oldest flying stations in the Royal Air Force, its rich and diverse history dating back to 1916. Today the Station is the home of the A4 expeditionary logistics hub. Located near Stamford, RAF Wittering is also host to a variety of other important units and maintains an active airfield in support of Joint Force Harrier.

As a flying station, it provides full airfield facilities to support Joint Force Harrier and other aircraft. As the RAF Logistics Hub, it provides expeditionary logistics in support of RAF operations worldwide.

RAF Wittering is on the A1 about 3 miles south of Stamford and just within the County of Cambridgeshire, with the boundaries of Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire being within 3 miles.

Stamford is the nearest town offering a good range of shopping and a market is held in the town centre on a Friday. Nearby, the Cathedral City of Peterborough offers more extensive shopping facilities in modern precincts.

RAF Wittering has a range of recreational facilities. The gymnasium contains a modern, well-equipped weight training room and health and fitness suite. Other activities on offer include: canoeing, sub-aqua, skiing, mountain biking and trekking expeditions. There is also the High Ropes Course, which is adjacent to the gymnasium. The library and Internet suite are situated in Force Development Sqn.  RAF Wittering also has a bowling alley, several bars, and a Spar shop with vending machines.
