Brenzett Museum is a unique collection of wartime equipment, remains recovered from aircraft crash sites and memorabilia collected and donated to the Museum since its formation in 1972.

Since those early days members have attempted to improve the range of exhibits to embrace many aspects of the war. Brenzett is an Independent Trust dedicated to the memory of those living and dead, friend or foe, who served their country during wartime.

About Brenzett

In July 1942 the Air Ministry started detailed work to convert a 300 acre site between the A2070 and the A2081 into an advanced landing ground.

The Airfield was due for completion on 1st March 1943, but was not finished until September that year.

The airstrip (known locally as the Ivychurch Airstrip) was fist used by Spitfire IX's of no. 122 Sqdn. Also based there were squadrons to combat flying bombs, in 1944 , 129 Squadron two Polish squadrons 306 and 315.

The Museum buildings were used by the Women's Land Army as a hostel during the war, and some of the women's "graffiti" is still evident today!

In 1984 the whole building was handed over to the Museum Trustees to allow the project to expand and display a more comprehensive range of exhibits, not only from the war, but also from the local history of Romney Marsh.

The Museum is a non-profit making organisation. All proceeds are used to expand and improve the Museum and donations are made to Air Force Charities.
