Kendrew Barracks sits on the former site of RAF Cottesmore which was active between 1938 and 2012 and housed both the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Forces during its lifetime. Cottesmore was the home of the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment which trained Panavia Tornado crews and the last operational home of the British Aerospace Harrier II.
In July 2011 Defence Secretary Liam Fox announced that Cottesmore would house the Army's East of England Multi-Role Brigade. The Army officially took over the site in April 2012 and Kendrew Barracks was officially opened in October 2012 by the Duke of Gloucester. The new barracks were named after Major General Sir Douglas Kendrew. It is now home to the 2nd Battalion, Royal Anglian Regiment, who moved from Dhekelia Garrison in Cyprus. A second regiment, 7 Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps, moved to the base in June 2013.
As of 1 November 2018, there were 1,127 troops assigned to the units based at the barracks.
