Visited this one today, with Bryag, we'd already seen the Control Tower (here http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=23035&highlight=fearn)
And also the dispersals (here http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=24296&highlight=fearn )

So this was next on the list :)

It was a good site, plenty to see, although it was a bit trashed, and nature was taking over.

Into the accomodation:

Rather a nice wee fireplace:

Kitchen block:

Looking out - nearly all the water-tanks were still in these towers:

We found the showers:

And the loos - Royal Doulton too, posh :)

General view of some of the buildings:

Then we found the Mess:

Great to see the murals still there :thumb

Then onto the decontamination block:

This had "squat-type" loos - never seen these in the UK before:

Outside of the decontamination block:

We found the First-Aid block - looked rather an uncomfortable waiting room:

This would be a welcome sight after sitting on that concrete:

Nature was really taking over:

Remains of a Nissen Hut - shows the construction, as explained in to us by The Fox in a previous post :thumb

The destruction on this was rather random again, no roof on this building, but the hot-water tank still there :crazy

Still, the locals were friendly :D

A good explore, finding those murals made it for me!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, no narrative (and about three hundred less pics than I took!) This site was very photogenic. Zimbob emailed me asking how we missed this. Simple answer, it was about half a mile away from the airfield and tower we had explored previously, and directly out of line of site. Fortunately, the natives were friendly
