    Default RAF Upwood Aug 2015


    Final stop on the little weekend roadtrip, we drove some distance to RAF Upwood, a place I had always wanted to have a wander around but never got it nailed down on a trip until now. Once we established there were no airsoft events going on we quickly found entry and got wandering with the first objective being to locate the tanks. Whilst walking to them we saw a couple of teenage guys doing some free-running stuff as well as a group of three girls who looked no older than 14 or 15 having a wander around so felt pretty comfortable on site.

    The place has been covered a lot previously with the history well covered so I'll just get right into the photos. A lot of the buildings are very samey and all totally empty except the modern medical centre which is absolutely trashed but has some nice lights still inside.

    Nice shots here, some shots I haven't seen in other reports. Shame about the place though as it is steeped in history.
