A SHORT HISTORY OF THE SITE

Samlesbury Aerodrome was a base for WW2 fighters and bombers and the home of the 1950s Canberra Jet bombers.

The Blackburn and Preston municipal airfield proposed in 1922 was begun in 1939. The Air Ministry instructed the English Electric Company (EE) to extend the construction and by 1945 five main hangars and three runways had been built.

During the war Handley Page Hampdens and Handley Page Halifaxes were built at the site. And No. 9 Group RAF flew Hawker Hurricanes and Airspeed Oxfords from the site.

Planning


After the war aircraft such as the 1950s English Electric Canberra Bomber were built on the site. The Canberra Club is named after this bomber and has hosted many famous acts.
