Shipdham, in Norfolk, was home primarily to the 44th Bombardment Group (heavy) and hosted B-24 Liberators from October 1942 until 1945 which was longer than any other USAAF UK base. The airfield remains active as an unlicensed field so I didn't go for a wander but I did seek out the memorials at All Saints Church and at the chapel at Shipdham cemetery. The latter has been relocated after previously being affixed to the disused control tower.

At least they are still remembered. Very nice.
