Rutherford Fields has a big story to tell and that is because it used to be home to one of the country’s most closely guarded secrets; RAF Stanbridge.

Originally called RAF Leighton Buzzard, this picturesque site nestled in the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside played a key role as a global communications centre throughout WWII and crucially during D-Day and the Battle of Britain.

Established in 1936, the original RAF Leighton Buzzard base was created to be the main Central Exchange and Wireless Telegraph station for the RAF’s telephone and telegraph network.

Today, the village of Stanbridge enjoys the peace and tranquility of rural living, but the fascinating history of Rutherford Fields uncovers an era filled with top secrets and covert communication.

To anyone passing, this small and unassuming RAF base was like any other, but when its true identity was finally revealed, it was named as one of the most important logistical locations in the world.
