So this is my last post from RAF Coltishall.. this was the officers mess which is situated just out off the main area. Its a standard H block design which is common in most RAF accommodation blocks.  the wings are used for an upstairs and downstairs accommodation. Similar to the sergeants mess it has a new three storey block built on too it with an interconnecting corridor. These blocks are quite plush with nice lights and some funky carpets. this is prob one off the last used mess halls in the country now. So its in reasonable condition. Made a few visits too this block from 2017 to late last year.

The standard three bay arched door. Similar too that at Raynham and Upwood.

In one off the rooms is some nice artwork by the servicemen.

The newer block was a bit more bland with repetitive rooms.

In the basement off the main block is a little room, this has been converted into a small social club. Before the days of health and safety, there was more nice artwork on the walls.shame it was pitch black down here.

Loving that mate, especially the bar and the social club. Must be a huge site!

Fantastic. One of the best Officers' Messes for sure.

Loved looking at this collection Mikey. Superb natural decay there.

Looks great inside and of the same design as tonnes of officers messes around the country but like someone already said, one of the best conditioned ones around. We ended up here a couple of years ago but from memory it was about 2am and we couldn’t face another night sleeping in the car so we headed home with an aim to return but never got around to it. Sort of wish I had made the effort and waited for sunrise

Although pretty empty, but still a very nice place. I really like the set with your pics!
