    Default More RAF Madness, Scully and the Dome at Raynham.


    Righty ho. We had finised over at Bodney and decided to board the Flying Frog for a dash up the A 1065 to the Former RAF Base at RAF Sculthorpe an x American Base and one of the Biggest in terms of American Bases in the Uk. It used to house 10,000 Service Personnel! Now a shadow of its former self the site is trashed but still interesting!,.. The Personnel were housed in these Severe looking Barracks Most of the inside of the Barracks were long Corridors with small rooms either side. I love Stairs! Its all Yellow!! Black Shuck takes a well earned rest Biletting Building. After Scully I hada Brainwave! As we were in the area, why dont we check the Dome at West Raynham! Rumours abounded that it was open! We checked out the Incinerator as well, I was in Ecstasy! I love things like this! And finally the Missile Training Dome! This was used to train Missile Operators and would have large Battle Scenes projected onto the Roof inside, this place was awe inspiring! The Acoustics were Breathtaking Thats it for now.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Default ......and a few from me :-)


    It was really cool getting back into R.A.F. West Raynham and gettting into the dome which, we missed on our first visit. We had the added high-light of a little of bit of "cat-and-mouse" with the immigrant (Eastern European) "security" dudes. They eventually caught us and we left.

    So, on with the pics:
