A project has been ongoing since 2011 to rebuild and reinstate Metheringham's original air traffic tower by November 2013 to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the airfield's opening. The proposal is to restore the back to the original layout and add it to the Lincolnshire aviation heritage trail.

In order to fund the scheme the plan will be to revitalise the tower as a home and the neighbouring nissen hut fire tender shelter to provide holiday accommodation aimed at the aviation tourist.

Details of the planning application are here.

Metheringham Control Tower restoration project

The tower restoration project has its own website at www.rafmetheringham.co.uk

"The aim of this website is to publicise and document the restoration of the RAF Metheringham watch office. A private project which in time will be included in the Lincolnshire aviation heritage trail. The project will also allow access to view the tower and the airfield from a vantage point at the heart of the bomber station and should hopefully compliment the already established Metheringham visitors centre. – Currently no public access."
