    **WARNING PICTURE HEAVY!**

    Wow, oh, Wow, oh WOW, Jesus - We Embarked on our journey some 2 Hours from home, on a whim really as all the reports we had seen previously from this place have been Permission Visit's so we didn't think there would be any chance of gaining entry. We kind of put it off and decided to revisit Pontins - but as you well know if you have been its in a sorry state and you can explore the site in around half an hour! after some Fish and Chips we decided F%ck it lets just scout it out and see what's what... i have an okay knowledge of ROTOR / RGHQ Bunkers so after a bit of head scratching, we walked to the top mound of the R3 bunker and got sucked in through a worm hole... We were in! but from there i'll let the pictures do the talking!

    Info from Wikipedia

    RRH Neatishead, is a Royal Air Force military radar station in the English county of Norfolk, East Anglia, and was established during the Second World War. It consists of the main technical site, and a number of remote, and sometimes unmanned sites.

    The primary function of Neatishead was as a "Control and Reporting Centre" (CRC) for the south of the United Kingdom; it forms a part of the UK's air defences - namely the UK "Air Surveillance And Control System" (ASACS), and is part of the larger NATO air defence. It uses radar, ground-to-air radio and digitally encrypted data links.

    On 16 February 1966 a fire broke out in the bunker, station fire teams were unsuccessful in putting the fire out and so civilian fire crews were called. 3 civilian firefighters lost their lives. Later that year LAC Cheeseman was sentenced to 7 years for starting the fire and causing the deaths.

    RRH Neatishead controls the remote site of RAF Trimingham with its Type 93 Radar. It also controls the site at RAF Weybourne with its two AEGIS aerials.

    Neatishead is adjacent to the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum.

    In April 2004 the decision was taken to substantially reduce activities at Neatishead, and by 2006, the base had been downgraded to Remote Radar Head (RRH) status, but the museum remains open. The gate guardian, a Phantom previously based at RAF Wattisham, was cut up for scrap in 2005 despite interest from the Radar Museum.

    In October 2006 local media reported that a buyer had been found for the now disused section of the base. The 251/2 acres site was advertised again in January 2010, with an asking price of £4,000,000

    nice, I really like the orange door, it looks like you'd need a lot to get through that if it were locked.
