    4th Stop: Eventually found the photographic department, it was trashed, and it was pitch black. Only decent thing was the reams of “TOP SECRETâ€Â’ paper:

    Day 2:
    RAF Shipdham:
    Frustratingly this has been almost entirely converted to an industrial site, but the local flying club does still use the main runway, and didn’t mind us being there!

    RAF Watton :
    This is in the process of being demolished to make way for housing, and is a live building site.
    Structure of partially-demolished Hanger 3:

    We noticed a military ‘pen’ which was VERY heavily fortified, just had to find out what was in there! :p

    Serious lighting, pointing both in and out.

    Inside there were simply 4 tin huts, reinforced. With this notice inside, Anyone any ideas what it could have been used for?

    Some very nice shots there mate! Regarding Watton: Where was the heavily fortified area? I know Watton well, but cant recall anything like that. The best I can think of is that it is some sort of training area, maybe riot police or army who used to use it quite a lot. I found a few tunnels at RAF Watton years ago, regetably they have not been built upon (Before I got chance to take photos!) The bomb stores, fuzing sheds, small arms stores Fuel dump and shooting range are still there as of late lats year and pretty much in tact.
