    Default RAF Upwood - The End is Nigh


    I was at Upwood today doing some drone photography and got talking to the guy who looks after the site as he asked me to leave, they have now got approval to build houses and it all begins very soon, thought I would post these pics of the old girl as like me I would imagine a few of you lost your urbex 'virginity' there !

    If there is a fence round it then it must be worth looking at !
