I've split this into a couple of reports: We had a good six and a half hours uninterrupted around here! I took around 300 photos so getting them down to around 30 was a nightmare! Here's the best of the rest of the site (Offficers mess is in a separate report). Visited with Jon and Mikeymutt.

The Airman's Diner: (This had an identical layout to the Sargents Mess at RAF Upwood) but no graffiti.

Accommodation Blocks: These were really boring, the only cool bit was the underground air raid shelters:

Another great set Mr x..that full frame really got all that first shot in.I only just managed to get some of the stairs in.what a wet and windy day though.I did not expect to be that long there..I thought I was going to be home by dinner ha ha..I am still tempted to put up a report seeing as I saw lots of new bits.but I have done two already from here

This is great mate! Sooooo like Upwood the design, and no pictures from the top of the chimney?

Lol afraid not - I looked at the ladder caked in pigeon s**t, then looked at my hand which was open and still bleeding and thought: "Ahh, I'll leave this shot for DirtyJigsaw to take..." :p
