    Hi Guys

    I was researching sites much more local to me, ended up on a tangent and came accross this place (http://binged.it/1Hceu4r). I believe it closed a few years back and I have yet to see a report so far. The whole site is up for redevelopment from what I understand. If I were more local I would go and check it out myself, but I figured someone closer might be interested.

    Anyway, hope it is useful info to someone - Seems better than me sitting on it.

    Looks good. Maybe some building's have gone tho. Also fully boarded with sheet metal, onsite security and big barbed wire fence. I would say its a guaranteed fail.

    Is security tight on this or is it just climb through a fence and no problem?

    As you say in another thread you live close to Molesworth. The former RAF Oakington is therefore not a million miles away, so why not go and have a look.

    Sorry to put a downer on this but most of the site has gone. Clearance for the new town has wiped almost all of the site, a few buildings remain but are fully boarded up. These are being kept for a museum I am led to believe. There are a few pill boxes spread around the airfield. All of the hard standing is still there so you can get a sense of the scale of the place.

    Security patrols leave the main rear gate on the hour, and return within 20-30mins via different routes on the airfield. They use a stop start method to fool people into believing they have spotted you.. dont be fooled... unlike us haha. You can gain entry via pre cut holes in the fence on the longstanton side (Public byway).

    Let me know if you still fancy a visit, I would be happy to show you around.

    Worth a visit if you like your rare breeds though.
