    First ever explore for me and I loved it :) I'll be heading back at some point and also checking out some more sites in the area


    Background
    RAF West Raynham was a Royal Air Force station 2m west of the village of West Raynham in Norfolk which opened in the 1930s and closed in 1994 though the Ministry of Defence (MoD) retained it as a strategic reserve. The site was sold by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in 2006. Tamarix Investments, which now owns the site, plans to renovate the 170 houses at RAF West Raynham and build more homes and a hotel. Having laid derelict since closure, the MoD elected in 2004 that it was surplus to requirements, and the site was sold in 2006 to the Welbeck Estate Group who sold the entire site in October 2007. There are now a number of businesses on various parts of the site and new/revamped housing estates appearing.
    Visit
    Headed here early on a Sunday morning with a non-member. Spent about an hour milling around the various buildings with no problems. People were walking their dogs in the areas and there was a shepherd chasing after some sheep on the site. We only explored around 1/4 of the whole site. As a first explore we didn't want to outstay or welcome. All the buildings were in great condition with almost no vandalism aside from some broken windows. Worth another look in the near future to see some of the rest of the site :)
