Visited this one back in February.

After seeing a few peoples visits to here I knew I simply had to get there no matter what. So myself and Landie Man organised one of our northern weekenders with my main target being this place.

RAF Church Fenton is by far and away my favourite RAF base I have ever done, the majority of the base closed around 1992 and it has been sat there slowly decaying ever since. The level of dereliction is wonderful, everywhere you turn there is a photo opportunity, the trees and vegetation have run rampant all over the site giving it a real ghost town feel and I took more photos here than I've taken in any site for as long as I can remember. The base was bought by a businessman who now operates Leeds East Airport off the old runways and hangars, catering for light aircraft mostly.

As for the visit, after parking up and immediately being approached by a very friendly local with a gorgeous brown Labrador out for a walk and a bit of a friendly chat he disappeared back into his house and we made our entrance into the base. We spent over four hours in there undisturbed until the very end when we bumped into TrevBish and a group of other explorers.

I make no apologies for how many photos there are here.

Given the completely crap year I've had so far unsurprisingly this was the total highlight.

Thanks for looking, lots more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/albums/72157664884496086 :D

Fantastic set bud - loved the peeling paint and vegatation growing in the corridors but that shiney red kitchen counter sat amongst all that decay was my fav.
