Polebrook is a quiet village of some 500-odd inhabitants, tucked in the north-east corner of Northamptonshire, almost in Cambridgeshire. Its buildings are mainly stone, so that it looks like a displaced part of the Cotswolds. It has a church, one pub, a primary school, and no shops.
Like many English villages, Polebrook has a remarkable past: many things make it special.
For example, the Second World War. In addition to this website www.polebrook.org.uk there is a fine one devoted to the American Forces’ presence at Polebrook airfield during that time. This is at www.Polebrook.com. An excellent book called “Valor at Polebrook” has been sighted in the Oundle bookshop, and there are also two fine histories of the village available.
The church has a memorial chapel devoted largely to those who died while serving at Polebrook.
