    The part of RAF Sealand to the east of the A494 (the main domestic site) is now MOD Sealand and is used by the Electronics Business Unit of the Defence Support Group for the repair and maintenance of Avionic equipment so is still occupied. The airfield site to the west of the A494 has been demolished.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MoD_Sealand#Current_use for more information.

    Also be aware that MoD Sealand's ranges are still in use, so beware when red flags are flying.

    Driving past, most of the domestic site looks unused. There is a UNITER there, not sure if that's still in use though. The ranges are quite a distance from the main Sealand site.

    The dormitory blocks the larger buildings appear to have had the doors boarded over, also the on site security have a frequent walk around and need to touch in at various points around the base.

    The Uniter bunker is at the side of the fence near the cycle track heading away from the blue dragon bridge the one with the cycle track on, it will hopefully be well secured it was built to withstand bomb attacks.

    Its an ideal location for a small dormitory type hotel, small office or buisiness units. Its such a waste of some great older strong buildings.

    Hi, I drive past this daily.

    There is a UNITER bunker near the cycle path as mentioned, and something next to it which looks like power substation.

    There is also another bunker looking structure at the other end of the disused looking military part, is it another uniter or something else though?

    Then to the left / north(?) of that is the new part, where they have a contract to supply parts for the F22 raptor.

    Also if you drive down Sealand Road towards Chester and look left you can see old looking bunker types of buildings in the fields. I don't know how you get to them though as it is illegal to drive down Green Lane East (yet there are businesses down there??) which is weird.

    Your other 'bunker' is the hardened Decontamination Centre

    Supply parts to F22 Raptor? I guess you mean repair electronic equipment when we start to get the F-35s for the Navy and AirFarce. It's a civilian site - Defence Electronics & Components Agency and they already do similar work for the armed forces.

    I don't recall seeing 'bunker types of buildings' along Green Lane. You can walk along the full length of the lane but vehicle access is private from the old railway trackbed to St Barts. Access is for Green Lane Farm and the cattery. That said, can't see anyone stopping you from driving the full length if you want to....just say you are going/have been to one of those.

    Is it civilian? I thought it was owned and secured by the MoD?

    I mean F35 yes, sorry, I thought this was F22. They do look the same :D

    I haven't lived here long. Liking it up here so far though! I was looking around Denbigh Mental hospital the other day. Lots to see up here eh!?

    Been civilian for a long time the same as most of our armed forces ;-)

    Indeed...ugly

    Before the latest fire? Not really much to see except the rather nice frontage. It's too much of a tourist spot.
