    I have had to wait a while to post this as the obvious heat it could have brought, we had no idea this was there.
    We found this way before that photo from above went viral way before anyone even knew it was here.

    A trip to the paper mill and crook ham and the base in one day,
    access wasn't easy, a security light that appeared to come on on a timing device lit the whole place up which spooked us enough, on top of that all the pigeons in the tunnels. Which were to stupid to find there way out
    Would love to get in the bunker here

    wheels for a plane bomber and a few cargo boxes with aeroplane parts were all there were on the second visit months later. No signs of it ever being there


    When looking around it didn't seem to be abandoned which we thought was strange, fork lifts cranes ect.

    then we came across these weird drill looking things little did we know these were enemy spaceship drones.

    Then we come out of a tunnel into the darkness and in the distance we see what appears to be a ufo,
    Still worrying about the light we ventured on. as we got close we could tell it was a prop of some kind it was huge, a few of our group stated it was the falcon, but we weren't certain. it did all seem to make sense with the filming of the new star wars.

    unfortunately i lost most of my pictures from that night, and my camera wasn't good enough to get all of it in pitch black. I still may be able to recover some off my old laptop

    but some were saved via email. Luckily.

    Shame i can't find the other photos of the props that were around
    enjoy.

    Can't actually see the photos as my work computer are blocking them (are they tagged as being porn??) which is strange as I my office allows me to see 99% of what's in here

    Yes please do upload as much as you can, sounds as if you made a big scoop here. I will look when I get home
