Default RAF Croft, Warrington - March 08

Visited with Romanian1.

Can't seem to nail down a date as to when this place was first opened, the closest I've got is early 1941. The base was used by the RAF from that period up until the mid 50s when it became tenanted by the USAF as a processing station for Burtonwood airbase (the largest USAF base in the country until it closed), which is also in the area of Warrington.

Nowadays though what remains is used by a farmer for storage and whatnot, it makes for an interesting mooch around as there are quite a number of original features in the place, it's certainly somewhere I'll be revisiting, as we didn't arrive until it was close to getting dark and we only had one torch between us.

Anyway, enough of this jibber jabber, on with the pics!!







The stage in the theatre, a theatre ffs!!



Projection room windows.



Lovely parquet floor, sadly covered in mud and filth...



Arkwright's till...Gra..Gra..Granville..





Original signage, we were quite impressed by this for some reason.



And that's that, I quite liked the place.
