After hearing that the most crap and fraudulent program on T.V. (Most Haunted Live) was heading to this former R.A.F. station, Black Shuck and I (accompanied by The Explorer Kid and Yazz95), headed right there to get what we could whilst we still could before the influx of wannabee "ghost-busters" starts, thereby making things even more difficult for us.

The excitement of the day was heightened by the hazardous journey to the base, which is located in the middle of nowhere, because of the snow and ice. We had a good explore around the place which lasted for more than 5 hours. All who went had a great day and we took over 200 photographs EACH!!!

There is some history detail elsewhere on this site, so all I'll say is that it was opened in 1939, was used as a bomber command and later on for Rapier missile training, then closed in 1994. It is currently being redeveloped for housing.

There are more pictures on my Flickr page: http://bit.ly/6LBSKI

Love the black & white shots, esp. the CT. Did you visit the Bloodhound aprons? Then again I guess there's little or nothing to see?

I saw the Most Haunted programme last night - fair play, it's probably a load of rubbish, but it was quite entertaining...one of the most interesting things on it was the starter motor for a Lancaster bomber :)

Apparently the bar and the Sergeant's Mess are the places to go to ;)
