Big Steps at Tarrant Rushton Airfield


In 1941 the quiet Dorset village of Tarrant Rushton was overrun by the construction of a massive RAF airfield on its doorstep. In the early hours of June 6th 1944, gliders took to the skies towed by Halifax bombers to land the first troops into occupied Europe on D-Day.

Big Steps at Tarrant Rushton is an opportunity get up close to the one of the surviving WW2 hangars and the runway where the troops departed on D-Day and two months later to seize the bridge over the River Rhine at Arnhem during Operation Market Garden.

Tarrant Rushton is a place of stark contrasts. Some people's image of Jesus is more conducive to a quiet village than a battlefield. He was certainly a man of peace but also familiar with conflict. Jesus frequently disturbed the peace and challenged the religious status quo.
