    Croome court was used in WW2 to build an airfield and RAF station. The centre of airfield is still used for satellite comms (Qinetiq) and the airfield by West Mercia police for driver training. I remembered this placed as set of big golf ball radars which you could see from the railway line.

    There's now an airfield museum in Croome Court. https://deffordairfieldheritagegroup.wordpress.com/

    One google earth there's still some old buildings left in the woods in the centre of the site that look worth a visit.

    There might be more buildings in the woods,

    I've found one report on a visit but it looks like the mainly went to the hospital area which is now the museum.
