Unit History: RNAS Stretton

RNAS Stretton
Royal Naval Air Station Stretton (HMS Blackcap), was an airfield close to the village of Stretton, south of Warrington, in Cheshire.
The airfield is south west of junction 9 of the M56 motorway and originally had three runways.
RNAS Stretton was originally planned as a Royal Air Force night fighter station to protect Liverpool and Manchester from German air raids during World War II. However changes in German tactics meant that the airfield was not required so was transferred to the Admiralty on completion.
