    Great report, I pass this place quite often and have been very tempted to have a look, but was unsure of the level of security, now I know!! According to the film blurb, the scenes where the skinheads trash some old houses in the excellent film 'This is England' were filmed at RAF Newton.

    The revery alone will do, if bees are few.

    Nice bit of autumn sun there in your pics, Fezzyben, shame we couldn't see more of the place this time around, not worth pushing our luck once security were on the case tho;)

    Looks like you walked straight past the PIR's. Its quite easy to have a leisurely stroll around the whole site as long as you keep an eye out for them. Better luck next time, its a great site :)
