A World War II airfield, RAF Horham, was located at Horham. The U.S. Eighth Air Force, 95th Bomb Group, and the 334th Bomb Squadron flew from Horham. A portion of the runway is still visible. The Red Feather Club has been restored and a World War II museum is in the same building. There is also another museum which was formerly the airfield's hospital.







The village still maintains close bonds with veterans and families of the 95th Bomb Group community in the United States. The village has paid host to these families in numerous reunions, most notably in 1981, 1989, 1992, 2005 and 2009. June 2013 saw the village celebrate the 70th anniversary of the 95th Bomb Group's arrival.
