Evanton Airfield Memorial

The Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust (ABCT) was established in 2006 with the aim of preserving historical details and records of airfields.

To this end the charity has erected a great number of memorials across the UK to ensure these heritage sites, the people and units serving there, are not forgotten.

On 13 August 2017 Highland Deephaven Industrial Park, the location of the former Evanton airfield ,became the latest site to have a memorial unveiled by ABCT.
