    Smile Return to Raf binbrook feb 2013


    I wanted to return to raf binbrook to another building that we missed on are last visit this one seemed to have missed the demo team when the officers mess and airmens accommodation was reduced to a pile rubble i also wanted more pics of the medical center so here's a little history for you

    The Royal Air Force base at Binbrook sits high in the Wolds with a commanding view over Lincolnshire it was established in 1940 and was in service for almost half a century - home to the legendary Lancaster Bombers right through to the Lightning jets.
    Closing in 1988 the land and buildings were sold off and today form something of an ad hoc industrial estate with most of the original buildings still standing with many now in use as workshops and storage facilities etc.

    the pics starting with the station medical center

    The stairs on pic 11 reminded me of some stairs at Bradgate nursing home.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Nice report - the staircase is easily the best feature!
