Theberton & Eastbridge


Anyone here with a connection to the village? It was here in 1917 that a Zeppelin Airship was brought down by a British biplane aircraft, within the porch of the church (round tower and thatched nave roof) is the story of the incident

There is quite some detail of the history of Theberton, the Zeppelin crash and the USAAF in the area during WWII
