Visited here with LittleLaura and Diehardlove. Was a good day and a huge site.
Highlight for me was getting into the Rapier dome. :)
The base opened in the 1930's and closed in the 1990's. Parts of the site are still used as units and theres also a housing estate there.

Anyway on with the pics...


The bunkers at the back end of the site

Excellent report!
Hope you're ready for the inevitable 100 PMs asking you for access details for the dome! :neutral:
It really is a surreal place isn't it? So much of the site looks like other local military venues.
Did you find any 'Most Haunted' tat?

haha yes thats a funny thing about getting in somewhere good,the sound in there was really strange a tiny noise was as loud as a bang and was quite light in there even though there was no windows etc.
