    Seems to be a few interesting looking bits there on the aerial shot

    It's an odd place, semi live and the units that aren't are fetid. I did the boiler house a while back (it's in the general photos thread). There's a lot of buildings. If there's anything worth it it'll be hidden and/or trashed. I wouldn't bother personally but it's probably worth a bit of research. :)

    Somebody did do a bit of a report on here a good few years back. It is quite an interesting place architecturally. There's quite a few "Batavilles" around the world.

    I've only got 4 photos and it's only of the boiler house (it's empty), but I can if you want? :)

    There is always something, crikey they recently pulled d-day stuff from wall and ceiling spaces at Bletchley!

    Problem is most people just go to derps for pics and don't rummage about properly, found epics in the basement at hydes brewery but didn't move a thing, there must be dozens of places just like it

    Just don't tell Dan Circa or HS media will rinse it in the fail and will be looted in no time :rolleyes:

    I did a couple of buildings at BATA a few years ago, was delivering to one of the used buildings there and took a creative lunch break. Empty as far as I remember.
