    I visited the tower this evening, access to the tower is easy with no security whatsoever !
    The tower seems structurally sound though there are some large holes in a couple of places which were probably made when the tower was stripped bare .

    There is sign of the building being on fire recently, a notice outside tells of an arson attack . Though inside there is nothing of the building that would burn. outside the doorway there is the remains of a lorry tyre which may have been burned inside. Damage seems to have been confined to the first room only (heat and smoke)

    The building has 3 levels with several rooms on each floor. The stairs and floors are concrete and solid . The top floor has fine views in all directions across the former airfield, which is hardly recognizable as such with only small patches of the original concrete runways visible .

    The building has a rather sad air about it.

    I took them in B&W , the light was fading fast and an atmosphere was thick in the air, the tower cried out for B&W :)

    This dead bird was on the upper floor

    It seemed rather fitting with the atmosphere .

    The graffiti was everywhere

    I don't know if its me being tainted by this wonderful world we live in, but I kind of expected it to be like that :crazy

    As I drove off I noticed a couple of smaller buildings over grown on the other
    side of the road (sorry no pics) they will be worth an explore I'm sure :D
    They were about 300yards right of this picture

    Note at the edge of the road the concrete taxiway

    I also noticed some buildings possibly barrack blocks close to the village, these were in an abandoned state, falling into rapid decay.
    but being rather close to civilization would be more difficult to look at:(
