    Default RAF warboys..Cambridgeshire


    Visited this one early morning while passing through Cambridgeshire.i enjoyed this one.with the old Nissen huts interlocked by corridors built of brick.i have never seen this before.there is various other buildings.including water tower and Stanton shelter...warboys airfield was a conventional bomber station at the start of the war built in 1940 as a relief to upwood.the main runway was extended later on and in 1942 was designated number three pathfinder group.and was one of the original pathfinder stations.it was placed under the standard care and maintenance regime in 1945 and gradually returned to agricultural use.it was used for a sort while between 60 and 63 as a Bristol bloodhound site









































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Nice photographs, falling to bits but still a few distinctive bits of huts and buildings.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
