    Default RAF Upper Heyford, Landies Selection Box March 2010


    Ok, so we all know about this place and its been done to death! But here is a selection of my eventful day last week!

    Originally opened as an RAF base in 1918, Heyford was passed on to the USAF, where it became a kind of “Mini America”; keeping the Soldiers feeling at home.

    The site closed down in September 1994 and is a haven of explorers, like cinemas, hospitals, schools, shops, dorm blocks, clubs, bars amongst other things.

    The day went well overall, till the police caught up with us, and carried out a stop and search! I guess my unique vehicle choice parked nearby didn’t help!

    What an awesome day, visited with TBM and Mooks!

    High School

    Part of the schools exterior


    One of the many awesome decaying corridors




    One of Many Classrooms




    Volleyball Court






    School’s Boiler Room




    Casino and Bar






    Dorms





    We didn’t even cover a FRACTION of the place! What a place though, despite it being done so many times!
