    Report - RAF Wittering - Cambridgeshire - July 2018

    Not to get this confused with the VERY active part of RAF Wittering then its a great explore, just keeps giving. It was built in 1955 as a remote weapons store and during the cold war it even held nuclear bombs. I love the vibe this place gives off whether its a wet cold rainy day or a bright...

    Report - RAF Upwood - Ramsey - August 2018

    RAF Upwood (Day time) I feel there is no need to go into the history of RAF Upwood as it is so well known. It is currently being torn down which is a shame because it had such a large impact when I first explored it and really made me get into urbexing so it will always have a special place in...

    Report - RAF Thurleigh Airfield - Bedfordshire - October 2018

    Explore: Finding a spot to park was harder then gaining access to the abandoned RAF Thurleigh base, there are active parts attached at the edge however you can entre discretely and unnoticed. The main runway is used as storage for 15,000 unsold/unwanted cars and many of these have been sat...

    Report - Predannack airfield 25/07/2020

    I know this has been done a million times, but it’s the first time I’ve personally visited the airfield. It was so great to see some of the aircraft up close again!
