Saw this pop up recently and thought it was worth further investigation, and it was.

There isn't much information out there at all about this location but GPSS Sawtry was a former Government Pipelines & Storage System depot that supplied fuel to RAF Alconbury. It was built on the site of a former Second World War POW Camp and appears to have closed somewhere around 2006. There are two large warehouse buildings at one end of the site which appear to still be in use, so we didn't get too close to them as we were unsure to what level they were active.

It is kind of like a smaller version of the huge one at Islip near me, however there is a lot more of interest left here compared to the bare buildings and structures there. It's been a while since I've done a nice military site like this and other than a small amount of graffiti in a couple of buildings it's been pretty well left alone - just a shame all the underground bunker areas are flooded. A lovely peaceful explore on a bleak January morning.

Thanks for looking :)​

You'd need a drone and a repeat of last summers weather conditions, to see the WW II prison camp as the outline of some of the huts is still visible as Parch Marks
