    Default RAF Sculthorpe Dec '15


    Just down the road from West Raynham is another former RAF airfield-turned-industrial-park however this is one that sits in stark contrast to the decayed beauty of West Raynham. RAF Sculthorpe is like a polar opposite - trashed, graffiti covered and very very bleak especially when it rains, like we found out. However it is still an enjoyable and relaxing place to explore, it reminded me a lot of the grottier parts of RAF Upper Heyford. Nobody seems to ever explore this place, and with West Raynham just down the road I can't exactly blame them but it was nice to squeeze in site #5 at the weekend before the long drive home.

    Nature is slowly taking over this place. Sometimes graffiti can be quite nice on derelict buildings but not in this case.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
