    Visited with TBM and Zotez.

    This place has always fallen under my radar, I'd gone past it a few times in the past but the buildings at the front always looked pretty damn secure so never really bothered. TBM suggested this site the other day though so we went for a poke around today. Initially failing to find access we found it after a while and had a great relaxed explore, although with the glider club in full swing I felt a bit hesitant in the open areas!

    A potted history can be found here: http://www.windrushers.org.uk/airfield_history.htm

    English heritage describes RAF Bicester as:

    We got there to find most of the smaller buildings tightly boarded (and most missing the roofs) but we found access to three of the larger structures. The rest will have to wait for another day.

    This explore will be remembered for the comedy sinking floors and the huge wasps nest in one of the buildings...as usual TBM was creaming himself over the artwork and I was revelling in the unchavved peely-paint goodness. It was also the first outing for my 550D so some photos might be a bit iffy for the time being, I'm still learning!

    The second building we got into had obviously been closed much more recently, it was empty, dark and fairly boring and we made a speedy retreat after finding a large wasps nest in one of the upstairs rooms:eek:

    We then moved on to my favourite building.

    And...well the roots of an idea formed and since the West Park fire extinguishers are now consigned to history we thought why not recreate it with some of the hundreds of bottles of water dumped in the building?

    A few randoms from around the site, as you can see from a couple of the photos the weather turned on us towards the end so we decided to put off the bomb store side for more pleasant weather.
