Recommended Posts

Visited with Makepondsnotwar and Venustas, nice 6.00am start at Macdonalds where I was given free coffee from the girl there (no idea why lol)

What a fantastic location this is, for me it’s the best place in the UK I`ve done.

Loads of history on DugieUK`s report the other week and I`m not one for words so I`ll crack on with the pictures

I make no apologies for the number of pics, 6 hours and we didn’t cover it all, just so bloody big !!

We found what looks like a room that used to house coin collections. Fascinating room, looks like details of each coin was held on a slip of paper underneath each part that holds the coin

      I've put this in misc as I'm not sure whether it's military or industrial. The walls and roof underground look very, very military but the location and above ground decor is very industrial.
      First thing I knew about this explore was when Hood_mad phoned me and said "Dude, I've found an underground vault, you need to be here!!!"
      Suffice to say, I flew out of work, followed his directions and ended up next to him facing a heavy LOCKED steel door with my shiny new 8Mp Samsung i8510.


      A ring to a friendly locksmith and 2 hours later the lock was drilled and the door was open.


      Inside was, unfortuantely not much, but there were some groovy aiming marks on the walls.
      Walking around, still underground, we found this paper dated Thursday June 30th 1977


      Dartboard.

      Scoreboard


      Mmmm, telephone wiring.




      Large room with warnings.





      This was a once only , so I hope I did it justice.
      I'm still trying to get to grips with all the settings on my new camera, so bear with me.

      I had a few hours spare this afternoon so I decided to take a look at RAF Lympne's huts and some of the bunkers.
      Here are my pics....
      One of the bunkers:


      This little chap made the strangest rasping noise when he opened his wings to warn me off:

      The grate of death:

      Something did not make it:

      The sheds:




      Not so pukka now:

      Camping anyone?

      Hauled its last load:


      Who go's there:


      Do you think I upset him?

      Anyone know what this place is? maybe a refuelling tank and pump house:





      Pipes leading from hut in the direction of the runway:

      Driving along after Hood_mad and I had been working in the Shropshire, I spotted some barrack buildings hidden in woods at the side of the road.

      We stopped, and went to explore.
      Tilstock Airfield (formerly RAF Tilstock) is a World War 2 airfield located 3 miles south of Whitchurch in Shropshire. The village of Tilstock is about 2 miles west of the airfield. The site is also known as Prees Heath, after the neighbouring village Prees. The airfield comprised of 3 runways of which only one remains in use today.
      The site was in use during World War I as an Army training camp.
      Construction of the airfield was completed by mid 1942, the name 'Whitchurch Heath' being used until 1 June 1943, when Tilstock was adopted. Between 1 September 1942 and 21 January 1946, the airfield was used by No. 81 Operational Training Unit and No. 1665 Heavy Conversion Unit Royal Air Force for the training of pilots and crews in the operation of Whitley, Stirling and Halifax heavy bombers. During the 1950's, Auster AOP.6 'spotter' aircraft of No. 663 Squadron RAF used the facilities of the otherwise non-operational airfield during weekends for liaison flights with Royal Artillery units.
      Located near the junction of the A41 and A49, the airfield is still being used today at weekends for skydiving. Skydivers have used the airfield for Tandem Skydiving and running Parachute Jump Courses since 1966. The direction of the remaining runway is 33 (330) and 15 (150).




      Then, when we looked round the back of the barracks, we found a bunker, which we now know to be the Battle HQ.




      Air vent.

      Old toilet roll holder.

      Chest freezer??

      Switchboard wiring.

      Chair shot.

      This was a fantastic, lucky find and now that I know some more information about it, I will be back to look at the control tower etc.
      Cheers for looking,
      J.

      From the filmset, this was fantastic inside.

      The subject line is a bit vague as the owners were spot on with us and asked us not to put the location out there.
      If this report tickles your fancy and you would like to visit, drop me a PM and I'll give you Tims mobile number.
      The best spot in the site (the room with the drawings / maps) is under lock and key and they were more than happy to unlock it for us.
      The Chapel.

      Brick cross on the wall.

      Shot from the bottom end of the site.

      Prefab roof joist.

      Demolished building with urinal and chimney still present.

      Boiler room on the left of the photo.

      Close up of the boiler room.


      These were hanging just above the entrance to the boiler room.

      Fancy a climb??

      Look strong?

      Not so strong from this angle.

      Captian slow and hood_mad at one of the locked buildings.

      Demolished.

      Other ranks accomodation.

      Accomodation to the left, toilets to the right.

      Water storage in the tower visible on top of the building.

      Lightweight trailer.

      Officers quarters.

      Drying room.


      Two I beams had corroded away leaving only one to support this boiler.

      Water storage?


      Fireplace in the NAAFI. This had four fireplaces all using the same chimney.


      A bit out of focus, but you get the idea.

      Outside the NAAFI.

      There were a load of drawings on the wall inside the locked building, est @ about 1950ish.
      Drawing of a Sea Vampire.










      You can just make out "Shell" and "Esso" trademarks on these cans.


      Original Phone.

      After we'd done the accomodation side, we headed south west to the airfield proper.

      Shelter identical to the ones at Carew airfield.





      Underground HQ nearby. (Captain slow has some inside pics.)

      A great day out, we spent about 5 hours wandering about the site.
      Again, the site is well open, but if anyone wants above board access or just wants to see the drawings and maps, drop me a PM and I'll give you Tims number.
