    Further to our recent visit to RAF North Luffenham, Jakob and I thought we'd better share our trip.

    Permission was given for this visit, we were wearing hi-vis jackets we were watched and tracked, and advised where NOT to go because of the usage of the site.

    Please note a couple of things:

    1. The site is used alot of the time as a live firing range.
    2. The site is still active and is now called St. Georges Barrack.
    &
    3. The site has very active security, also soldiers with guns, SA80's I think.

    Anyway enough chat and the pictures.

    The site was used as a Thor site and still has the blast shelters and assorted other bits for that.

    Once again thanks to the folks there and please remember about the live ammo, security and soldiers.
