This months social lunchtime walk is the first of two visits by special arrangement to the Martlesham Heath Aviation Society Control Tower Museum.

Leaving from outside Adastral Park Reception promptly at 12:15, we shall have a brisk walk across the heath to the museum where they have opened especially for our group. Volunteers will be on hand to give an overview presentation with time to view the exhibits before returning after an hour or however long you can stay.

NB. this event is free but donations would be most welcome for this local history charity which has strong connections with the Adastral Park site.
