    First off a massive thanks to True_British_Metal for the tour of the place. Secondly, this is my first report so if I bugger anything up let me know and I'll sort it out!

    Okay, so you probably know this place to death by now so I will give you the history in brief.

    Used by the USAF during the cold war, the base was finally closed in 1994. During its hay day, it was "like visiting a mini America" as my mum puts it. They had everything from a hospital to a theatre.

    Todays explore focused on the Dorm blocks, these were where the USAF Cadets would have stayed during their time there. Each floor had several dorms, a living area, and two sets of toilets/showers. While they were there they left some amazing murals! I'll put some of the pictures here..

    Now on to Chow Hall, or "The Lamplighter Inn". Used as a main dining hall for all the dorms. There has been an arson attack and it's pretty stripped inside, was still nice to explore...
