11 (Fighter) Group Operations Room, Uxbridge


No 11 (Fighter) Group was responsible for the air defence of London and the South East of England during the Second World War. The Operations Room exists today as it did on 15th September 1940, the day it was visited by Winston Churchill to witness the conduct of the Battle of Britain.

Located 60 feet (18m) below ground the Operations Room is reached by 76 steps.

On the ground floor is located the plotting room, where the large map table displayed friendly and hostile plots. Also found in the room is a tote board and other displays indicating squadron readiness, pilot and aircraft states along with barrage balloon heights and airfield weather conditions.

The adjoining heritage centre and the Ops Room are open seven days per week. 10am to 4.30pm, with last admission at 3.30pm.
