    Post RAF Sculthorpe


    Since becoming inactive at the end of the Cold War, the entire technical and domestic sites of RAF Sculthorpe were sold to The Welbeck Estate Group in the 1990s. The MOD still owns the airstrip which is used for army helicopter exercises.

    This was a night time explore so it was quite dark inside.











































    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    Great photos! Especially seeing as you were obviously battling low light on your way around the site!

    Picture 9 did they go about on Vespa scooters? Picture 13 did you capture something more or was there dust on your lens? Nevertheless you did well in low light. Did you use flash or torches/lanterns?
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Fantastic stuff! The telephone exchange and data racks are almost identical to those in Bunker B too!
    Excellent images, especially considering the light.
    Thanks for sharing :)
