This iconic memorial is still visited on a regular basis as I saw on this visit. The gardens have recently been bedded out and looked lovely. The adjacent car park is free for the first two hours.

Well kept memorial to the very brave, and a fitipting tribute to their selflessness. It nice to see the area being kept so clean and tidy, with planted borders.

A simple but moving memorial on the High Street. Parking nearby. For those who do not know the background to this WW2 achievement some preparation is essential. Plenty of cafes around.

Worth stepping into the small garden to pay tribute to the heroes of the Dambusters Squadron. Very peaceful, considerig just off the main road and plenty of space to reflect.

A very appropriate memorial to the crews who flew in the Dambusters raids and all the other members of 617 Squadron, who were for a time based at RAF Woodhall Spa.

Web visit here anytime we are in the area, and pay our respects to the crews who flew on that mission, it always looks so good summer or winter.

Lovely monument to an important moment of ww2 and also the whole 617 battalion. Plenty of parking nearby and an easy walk to nearby cafes and shops.

A truly memorable monument to all those brave and gallant airman that gave so much. Don't visit Woodhall Spa and not stop for a few minutes to pay homage to them all. Car park next to it.
