    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.
