    RAF Fauld underground munitions storage depot - Late 2012

    Like everyone else I've held off posting this, but as things are at the moment I thought I may as well stick up my photos from here.

    RAF Daws Hill Nov 2014

    I thought I had better make the effort to have a look at what passes for a local site to me nowadays before Taylor Wimpey create more rows of awful identikit box homes on the site imminently. All in all an enjoyable mooch around a very stripped RAF site, saw some good stuff even in the pissing...

    The day began with hamtagger and i en route to Derby Royal Infirmary. There were a few undesirable chaps there weilding bats so we left after an hour or so. I still got an alright partial report out of it though (Feel free to check it out ;) ) On the way back home to Lincoln we decided to...

    Raf Banham. Suffolk. March 2014

    Nice one to Zyge for sorting out the visit. This site was unreal when you think of the history of it, and it was nice to get the guided tour around it all. Apart from my little daughter complaining that it is not us fun exploring when you are allowed to be somewhere, it is more fun when you are...

    RAF Binbrook, Lincolnshire - Feb 14

    I was told by a friend that this place had been completely demolished, then by another that there was still some buildings left. After a few beers on a Friday night I decided to carry out a bit of research on-line, including a little mooch around on google streetview and discovered several...

    RAF Stenigot November 2013

    This is my first post and I'm aware this place has been covered a few times but not for a while so here goes.

    RAF Sculthorpe 20/11/13

    The plan was to get picked up by another explorer to go and look at a site just for a recon in the pouring rain with the idea of protecting our cameras with bags and umbrellas and then move on to the real goal which was one of two airbases. Once in the car we decided that RAF Sculthorpe was to...

So there we were, four explorers fueled with nicotine and coffee on the road armed with cameras,tripods and enough light to blind any low flying aircraft that...
