Station History

Blyborough was a class 1 night Landing Ground situated 2km ENE of Willoughton Church. The landing ground was established for use by a detachment from No.33 (Home Defence) Squadron, while they were operating over North Lincolnshire. No.33 Sqn were based here from December 1916 until early 1918.

All records indicate that the landing ground had been given up by the Armistice, but there are no firm records to confirm or deny this. Plans also indicate that the landing ground covered an area of some 50 acres. After the Great War the landing ground was returned to farm land, and no evidence remains of its former use.
