UK Old Water Tower, Upper Heyford - June 2014

Upper Heyford Water Tower – June 2014

Having explored much of this disused/part used USAF base in Oxfordshire with my good friend TBM; and since its all being torn down and redeveloped, including peoples homes which the RAF built for the USAF in the 1960s, and we have explored much of it but sadly not the Water Towers, we decided that we were well overdue.

We went Midsummer to catch the best sunrise and were on the top of this awesome water tower by 03:50am and made our descent at about 06:15. It was an incredible, magical sunrise and a wonderful night of taking photos.

Thanks a lot guys

Excuse the laughing at the end but we'd been dodging getting spotted all morning and as soon as we got on the ladder in plain sight the car drove straight past!

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
