    RAF West Beckham (WW2) was located between the towns of Sheringham and Holt in Norfolk, England. The base was large and included a transmitter site, receiver site, generator site, underground rooms as well as two camps for based personnel to live in. RAF West Beckham opened in 1938 and closed in 1958.

    Myself (Detox), Dizzy & Lighthouse ended up running into this place after looking for local ROC posts. Later that day we returned with are equipment for a underground explore!

    Guard House to the site.

    Today the base is in private ownership. Many buildings remain.
