    My first report as a Junior Member

    You all probably know the history but here is a bit from Wikipedia:

    This all sparked from a discussion with a few friends who suggested doing the site, none of us thought we could get in but after a recce the night before we had an access point spotted, there are four fences to get through and we were very lucky because any holes are usually welded shut on the inner fences.

    We didn't see any security on site but on return a week later the entrance point we found has been sealed.

    On with the photos!

    After entry, we approached these bunkers (silos?) which cannot be seen from outside the fence.

    The famous caravan as seen in most reports on this place.

    Replica spitfire parts I was told, there were lots of things in storage.

    Loads of bits had been broken open and stripped, all the wires had been cut which I guess is to be expected.

    None of these doors would open, presumably giving access to the big concrete walls.

    These seem to have been smashed open, one of the only traces of vandalism here.

    Wonderful American style stencil writing.

    More electrical bits.

    This along with the concrete shows that this place was built to last! Derelict for 20 or so years and still no signs of falling apart.

    There are lots of these scattered around the whole Greenham Common area.

    The doors were only sealed one side as my next photo will show.

    Already posted in the people shot, but it's my favourite photo so no harm in sharing it again!

    Looking back over the site as we were leaving.

    I really hope you enjoyed my report, it's definately somewhere worth seeing if you're near the area!
