This one was another I really enjoyed, beautiful scenes of nature reclaiming man made structures, and a quiet, remote place. Shown around by @KM_Punk.

History

The camp was an old Polish Air Force/RAF Station. In 1947 Melton Air Base was formally turned over to the Polish Resettlement Corps, at that time there were 350 Polish airmen, officers and a small contingent of British officers still on site, carrying on as an RAF Station with the King's Regulations rigidly enforced. This made family life for the incoming Polish civilians, wives and children of the air men, extremely difficult. Husbands and wives had to live in separate quarters which naturally caused some friction between the military and civilians, one cannot marshal civilians, especially mothers and children, in the same way as troops. The camp consisted of several sites scattered over small hills with distances of up to three miles from one to another. Three of the sites were allocated for use by Polish dependants arriving from Displaced Persons (D.P.) camps in Africa.

The best thing is that the huge metal gates that were places to keep people out, are now nicked for obvious reasons.

The ride was getting really filthy now as we drove through the country side, and naturally when there is an opportunity to make a meme, I will always take it.

This was my third visit. First time was with Six, we had to make a hasty get away when someone shot at us with an air rifle
