Tholthorpe, near Alne, was home to another World War Two airfield used by Canadian airmen. As at East Moor, agriculture continues alongside sections of crumbling runways and some peripheral remains of airfield accommodation.
Tholthorpe’s memorial, made of Canadian granite, was placed in 1986 on the village green. The plaque states that the memorial is dedicated to those who served at the airfield and – like the memorial at Sutton on the Forest – it is also ‘to the many citizens of this community who supported them’.
One of the Halifax bombers from Tholthorpe crashed at nearby Alne, and damaged the church, as recorded in a framed memorial on the wall there. See St Mary’s, Alne, also on this site.
