    Looks interesting, good first report, thanks for sharing, prehaps a little history on the site would help as well
    If there is a fence round it then it must be worth looking at !

    Interesting, nothing in the pics however bears any resemblance to any HAA sites that I've seen, looks more like abandoned farm buildings to me though others might know more and correct me.
    It would appear that the pics are of the domestic camp associated with the site. :)

    I thought that's no HAA site then I thought domestic site perhaps? - and lo and behold :) - it's an unusual take on an HAA, I'd like to have seen the gun pits too though - I'm sure a few farm buildings crept in too :)

    They definately look like BCF (british concrete factory) biuldings wich were normally found at airfields.

    I have not seen many at AA sites though.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
