RAF watton was a large airfield in the centre of norfolk.opened in 1937 and was used primarily by British bomber command.then by the Us eighth Air Force force for overhaul of consilidated B-24 liberator bombers.after the war the airfield had several uses and in the end was just used as a summer training camp for the roc.military use stopped in 1995 and a glider club used the runway till 2012..there is not a lot to see at watton now.just the bomb stores and a firing range and some very gashed old building.the hangars are long gone.the main buildings over the main road like the restraunt and naffi are all in use by companies.but it's still a nice wander on a warm day
These few stores were being used for storage and full of crap.even the kitchen sink
This was the firing range.a few buildings and a firing wall.
Further up of what remains of the now being crushed up runway is this old building.no idea what it was used for.it stood near the hangars.it had barbed wire all around the top.the building is trashed and wide open.but the front is well sealed with CCTV signs.as I got in I noticed each point to the front was sealed so I looked through a small gap and in the room was loads of geese.they must have heard me because they were making a hell of a noise.
The barbed wire room.this was two rooms filled with barbed wire for some reason.reckon it was left from the roof and dumped in here.it was a breathe in moment to get through for the first shot
