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,

We drive out after seeing a post on Facebook. I was surprised by how quiet it was as we were expecting a great sunset behind the statue. We were not disappointed and feel we got some great pictures without forgetting the reason behind the memorial....More

Tucked just off a small laybye this memorial is hard to miss, imposing and powerful. Its hard to imagine that the field beyond was the closest air base to Germany during the war, and the tranquil field once filled with the roar of Merlin engines....More

Well worth stopping and looking at the memorial especially when the sun is shining on it. It makes you think about how it must have been in the war as there were several airfields in the area and the airmen who served in the RAF....More

You won't be here long, but you'll be here longer than you think you will. We stopped off on our route between Bridlington and Spurn. We were looking for signs to Lissett but there's better signing for the 158 Squadron Memorial itself. There's parking space...More

When you discover this memorial for the first time it really makes you fully appreciate the peacefulness and beauty of a former airfield during World War 2 and its sheer size, the wind turbines in the field each named after a Bomber that was stationed...More

Simple in principle, and stunning in practice, this is a beautiful and very atmospheric memorial. Well worth a visit.
