    Visited here a few weeks ago,

    Not a great deal of info online about it that i could find easily, it's seemed to have many uses since being an RAF base like police dog training, proposed plans for an asylum centre and there must have been some sort of college mechanic training here at some point due to the fiat apprentice workshops within one of the hangars. We managed to get in pretty much everywhere apart from another one of the hangars and the two towers. The accommodation is pretty much un-touched, the TV's are barely dusty and the beds are still mostly made. it's pretty eery. There was ALOT of really expensive shit kicking about, a full kitchen with industrial pot wash/cookers/fridges. A full size snooker table & ping pong table etc.

    I can shed a bit of light on the history of this place. I have good memories of attending on block release between 1994 and 1998 when it was used as a college for nvqs and city a guilds for apprentices in the motor trade, mostly mechanics. I can remember Toyota, ford, brs/exel logistics, Mercedes and various others sending apprentice mechanics here. I think it had a reputation as a better place to send apprentices than the local college as it was residential. Photo 1 looks like one of the hangars which was converted into workshops. Photo 8 was the games room where they even had sky tv (this was the height of luxury in 1994 and introduced me to beavis and butthead!) thanks for sharing and sorry for waffling but had some good times here.
