Owner description: The Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves. They served in Bomber, Fighter, Coastal, Transport, Flying Training and Maintenance Commands, and came from all parts of the Commonwealth. Some were from countries in continental Europe which had been overrun but whose airmen continued to fight in the ranks of the Royal Air Force. This Memorial overlooks the River Thames on Cooper's Hill at Englefield Green between Windsor and Egham on the A308, 4 miles from Windsor.

a nice place to go for personal reflection. There are a lot of stairs to get to the top, but very well worth it.

I was surprised to be reading a heading under the name American Air Museum in Englefield Green. I lived there on Cooper's Hill Lane for over 16 years and THERE IS NO SUCH PLACE. People are confusing it with the Air Force Memorial a beautiful BRITISH and Commonwealth War Memorial site that commemorates the lives of thousands of airmen who died in battle and with no known grave. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE revise this listing!

AMERICAN AIR MUSEUM . . . no such place!

Dedicated to the WW2 Aircrews who were lost fighting from Britain and whose remains have no known grave, this is a memorial of immense gravitas. Its setting is serene and totally lacking any hint of commercial exploitation. There is an undeniable personal quality to it, particularly for anyone who lost someone dear in this conflict. The overwhelming youth of those remembered is shattering and confronting.

After a walk across Runnymead to see the Magna Carta and John Kennedy memorial we went up to the Museum.
The car park is on the right before the entrance, a short flat walk.
Beautifully maintained grounds and a stark reminder of how many young men gave their lives for our freedom. We even found family members listed in the records room !!!
Fantastic views over the Thames and to London in the far distance.
