This project to investigate the heritage of RAF Hornchurch has been helped by many different organisations from English Heritage to local groups such as the RAF Hornchurch Association. A list of links to websites of some of these organisations and other relevant groups is included to the left.

Although the project has been commissioned by London Borough of Havering it has been entirely funded by a grant from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (administered for DEFFRA by English Heritage and other bodies such as Natural England). The ALSF was established in April 2002 in order to help offset the environmental effects of aggregates extraction, particularly in aggregates-producing areas. Hornchurch Country Park is an ideal candidate for an ALSF grant due to the large scale aggregates extraction undertaken in the area since the 1960s.

Most of the historic photographs included on this website and used in the research for the project have been provided by Richard Smith from the Purfleet Heritage Centre. Further research has been undertaken at various places including: the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, the RAF Museum London and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
