History (Wikipedia):

Royal Air Force Greenham Common or RAF Greenham Common is a former Royal Air Force station in Berkshire, England. The airfield was southeast of Newbury, Berkshire, about 55 miles (89 km) west of London.

Opened in 1942, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Forces during the Second World War and the United States Air Force during the Cold War. After the Cold War ended, it was closed in September 1992.

The airfield was also known for the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp held outside its gates in the 1980s.

In 1997 Greenham Common was designated as public parkland. The common was made a site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in 1985 along with Crookham Common.

As me and @jack watkins walked along where the airstrip used to be we realised how far away we were from the base and once at the base we climbed over the three fences to get in.

We went through all of the 18 silos but there was nothing notable about any of them so we went into the ditch past the silos and walked around the path finding some other storage units which were mostly empty except for a dumper truck for some reason.
