Rehabilitation Centre

The RAF left Desford airfield in 1953 and the whole site was later bought by Caterpillar. We know that the one main building on what is now the SiD site was the Sergeants’ Mess. By hearsay we understand that this building became a Rehabilitation Centre for a number of years before being demolished at some time before 1988 when Desford Parish Council bought the SiD site from Caterpillar.

As we know nothing more about this period we would welcome any information about the SiD site and/or the Sergeants’ Mess/Rehabilitation Centre during the period 1953 to 1988. Please email Jim Houghton on with any insights. Thank you!
