Aircrash Memorial

The Second World War visited Mayfield on 13th June 1944 when six airmen lost their lives here. They were the British and Canadian crew of a Vickers Wellington bomber that crashed during a thunderstorm and exploded on impact. Sixty-seven years later, Mayfield Heritage Group commissioned a memorial stone which was erected in the churchyard, close to the crash site. The memorial stone was unveiled by Royal Canadian Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Agnew on 12th June 2011 during a service of remembrance.
