A simple but really touching memorial to the brave and fearless service people who protected our land, well worth a visit if you are within a few miles of Lisset. Don’t forget to take a memorial poppy to say thank you to the fallen.

Touching tribute to the air and ground crew from RAF Lisset. Well positioned by the roadside with a parking lay by. Board full of interesting details. Nearby wind turbines named after Halifax bombers and lost ground crew. Well worth a visit,

This is well worth the mile or so detour off the main Bridlington to Hull road, it is signposted. There is a pull in area at the memorial to park up. It’s a very moving tribute to all those who were based there during ww2....More
