History

RAE Bedford was a research site of the Royal Aircraft Establishment between 1946 and 1994. It was located near the village of Thurleigh, north of the town of Bedford in England and was the site of aircraft experimental development work.

Chilled Saturday explore this one with two mates. Nice bit of decay here. Don't like em too fresh and this one hit all the spots. Came for the control room and stayed for the peely paint. If you get to know me you'll I'm the clumsiest fucker around and I didn't injure myself.....winner. 

Cheers for reading.

Man that panel is lush. Couldn't get in when I tried a while back. Maybe time for round 2! Thanks for sharing and welcome to OS ?

Great to see this one pop up again! Looking a bit more decayed and peely since my visit a while back, was always a tricky entrance :O
