    Default North Weald War Building and Redoubt


    Hi guys,

    This weekend myself and some old friends ventured off into North Weald to investigate a building that was next to the old emergency bunker.

    I cant find out exactly what the place was used for (maybe storage), we then headed onto the redoubt. Half has been flooded since we went last a month ago, but this time explored the buildings that surround he redoubt. History on this place, was built in the Victorian times, then used as an ammo storage for the World Wars and in the 80's owned by BT.

    Oh and I shot in way too high an ISO. Thought grainy would be good until I saw the pics LOL

















    Now the redoubt;

    Cool explore, looks like you had fun and you even found an Alan Williams Turret. Although the iso is high, you have a good eye so keep up the practice.
