This place is owned by whatever Marconi call themselves these days. There are a variety of derelict bulings, an original hanger, nissen huts and underground tunnels (I have never found them). BEWARE : When I last visited in 2002 they were testing LIVE RADAR on this site (Radioactive dont stand in front of it!:eek: ) and there was a some sparse security.

Domestic Site nearby has been converted into commerical use. In 2002 they were removing the runway and quarrying.

This site is now fenced off from the approach road at Allshots Farm. This was due to illegal raves in the main control building which is only one of two still standing in the U.K.

I was here in October - half the main runway has now gone due to gravel extraction! A lot of buildings are still standing and are accessible. Access is easy if you know where to enter! Pictures on my website here

There's a beautiful interior of a romney hut on your site, looks like some really nice WW2 remnants there, thanks for sharing :)

It's nice to see some empty interiors of hangars, usually they're being used as storage or somesuch. Thanks :)
