The Explore :
Visited the site in Jan 2020 - This has been on my list for some long time and i know its been done to death too - Visited the site with @WilsonTheHuman and none members - After seeing online that the planes have been removed - we went searching for them - Didn't take long to find them. Got stuck in the mud too on way ( Don't wear trainers on muddy fields that waterlogged lmao :banghead ) Once at the planes we spent a while taking photos and looking at some of the buildings that were left. mainly medical block and a social club or bar I believe. The plan itself was amazing - iv was told i used to live on the grass.

Coming towards end of the explore a guy drove up in the car, wanted to know what we were doing ( he said kids have been up there a lot trashing bits ) and asked us nicely to leave - So we put away our camera gear and left with no issue what so ever.

i like to see what the future holds for this place though .. Be a shame it becomes all houses :wanker

History: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Marston_Airfield
The airfield was previously RAF Long Marston a Royal Air Force station used for training during the Second World War. The station closed during 1954.

On 26 November 2015, a Stratford District Council planning committee approved plans by CALA Homes to build 400 houses on the site, part of their proposed development scheme which aims to eventually feature 3,500 houses.[2] As a consequence, the remaining airfield buildings will be demolished, the runways and drag strip removed and the businesses will be forced to close or relocate

now on to some photos .

First off Planes














I believe this was the old social club but I could be wrong - I only got one photo.




Now the Medical Room.

Thanks for Reading :)

Interesting to see the Shackleton has moved from its old location in the former museum compound. It had being in that museum site since 1995.

The 'social club' was the former bar for the drag strip, the medical building belonged to the former drag strip as well.
