    Thanks to Sixfingers for the lead, and the nightime visit the previous day.

    RAF Swinderby was created as a WW2 Bomber Command airfield, and during the war was built, concreted, lengthened, expanded, but ended up as a training school for the rest of it's life. It's history is here... http://www.raf.mod.uk/bombercommand/s80.html

    First stop, the 'modern' control tower. Considering it's 50% glass it's in very good condition with little damage by our standards. I want this as my house...

    Next stop, the original WW2 tower. Unfortunately, the rounded corner windows have been replaced...

    Then a nice new find... The WW2 battle bunker. This was a two storey bunker, the usual bit with the thin slit, and below that a set of rooms. Very ruined inside but worth a visit...

    Another excellent explore OT.

    We've visited Swinderby a few times now and missed that Battle Bunker so tonight myself, sixxfingers and madmax paid a visit.

    Some night time shots here:

    Here's a few of my nightime trip with OT, we had quite a few funny moments on the night... not only at this site, but a number of others.
    Even including OT doing a C&A pose in the last image!

    The second set of pics are from OT's information about the bunker and a nightime visit with Silverfoxxx & Madmax.
    Hope you enjoy...
