Thank you Inside Croydon for publicising this heritage event that was ably led by Ian Walker of Waddon’s Croydon Airport Trust, this evening. So much terror visited on Croydon across the town centre to Addiscombe that led, amongst other things, to the Beddington aerodrome and then Waddon aerodrome being established in defence.
