  1. Explored with Raz & 2 non members (i think) Background Royal Air Force Station Folkingham or RAF Folkingham is a former Royal Air Force station located south west of Folkingham, Lincolnshire and about 29 miles (47 km) due south of county town Lincoln and 112 miles (180 km) north of London, England. Opened in 1940, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Forces. During the war it was used primarily as a troop carrier airfield for airborne units and as a subsidiary training depot of the newly formed Royal Air Force Regiment. After the war it was placed on care and maintenance during 1947 when the RAF Regiment relocated to RAF Catterick. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, the RAF Bomber Command used Folkingham as a PGM-17 Thor Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) base. Today the remains of the airfield are located on private property being used as agricultural fields, with the main north-south runway acting as hardstanding for hundreds of scrapped vehicles. Went early one february morning for a look around and with the ice melting and sun rising we found this little gem, Bedford fire trucks and all sorts, Love it!! Half hour in a jeep and a van came flying onto site and we took shelter behind a 360 degree tipper. Found us and the conversation went a little like this; Imagine Farmer in a heavy Lincolnshire farmers accent Farmer -"Who are you? What are you doing here?" Us - "We are photographers, taking photos of these vehicles" Farmer - "So why the fuck didn't you ask?!?! How would you like it if i came into your back garden and started taking photos of your things" Us - "We didnt think anyone owned it" Farmer - "Oh yeah, because there is any land in the whole of england that isn't owned" Us - "Sorry" Farmer - "No, i can tell your nice lads but why the fuck didn't you ask?" This went on for a while longer and he then eventually told us to "Fuck off cause ive called the plod" Need to revisit Quite gutted i missed out on the amphibious vehicles, i was hopping to get inside a "Stolly" If you got this far, thanks for looking
  2. History ‘The facility will provide much needed spaces for visitors to our university. Significant events in our calendar, including graduation and open days, will benefit from this car park. The car park will also support much improved utilisation of the Octagon Centre and new Students’ Union building’. This crane was located along Durham Road, in the University of Sheffield owned sector of Sheffield. Once completed, the car park will provide an additional 500 parking spaces on the campus. It will also hold a retail unit in the lower ground section and this will be accessible on the Glossop Road side of the building. Although the multi-story car park is being funded by the university, space allocation will be shared between both the Children’s hospital; which will be given 100 spaces, the general public (as a short stay car park) and, of course, the university. Prior to construction all of the windows in the Husband Building, namely those overlooking the project, were double glazed to reduce noise and dirt pollution. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by December 2015. Our Version of Events After a few hours down Megatron, myself and Ford Mayhem decided to head out into the city to have a crack at one of the many cranes that are currently located in Sheffield. As follows, we wandered around for a bit, weighing up our options, until we finally chose one that looked to be the highest of them all. Somehow, or so we hope, we managed to evade a number of security cameras on our way into the site, and we were careful to avoid a few PIR’s as we wandered around inside to reach the base of the crane. Unfortunately, however, the bottom hatch was locked. ‘Oh no’ we said, as, instead, we walked to the top of the car park. It was from up there that we managed to climb out over the edge to reach the crane; this meant we were able to climb inside the scaffold of the crane to climb the ladder positioned inside. After that, we climbed the ladder until we reached the flat platform at the top. Although it was fairly windy, we managed to set up the tripods and grab a few shots of the surrounding city. And, while some of the shots are slightly blurred, we hadn’t expected such a nice platform in the first place so they’re probably a lot better than they would have been. We spent a fair while up there; trying out the cabin which we’d discovered was open, climbing over the front of the rig and up to the very top platform, but finally left as the sun could be seen peeking over the horizon in the distance.
