Carnaby was built as a large Emergency Landing Ground during the Second World War. It was also used as a Relief Landing Ground for various RAF training units after the war and later became a base for Thor intermediate range ballistic missiles.

Now primarily used as an industrial estate, ABCT erected a marker at the site on 1st August 2014.
