RAF West Kirby

RAF West Kirby

RAF West Kirby was a Royal Air Force training camp in West Kirby, Wirral Peninsula, England.

The camp was set up at the beginning of the Second World War to train RAF recruits in physical fitness. Thousands of conscripts went through its gates up until 1960, when the camp was demolished and the land converted back into farming fields. The camp entrance was on Saughall Massie Road, almost opposite Oldfield Lane. A dedication plaque was installed there in 2006.
