Hi all, :hello

This place got flattened earlier this year to make way for new houses, She was my first ever UE and it was only a mile from where I live, so I visited several times as it was a big site with lot's to see..

RAF Croft started as additional living accommodation for H.M.S. Gosling located at Risley. H.M.S. Gosling was commissioned on 8 October 1942 and was paid off in 1946. That station was dedicated to the Fleet Air Arm and was a training base. H.M.S. Aeriel was also paid off and on 1 February 1956 was opened up as RAF Croft to process people in and out of the U.K. Although it was called RAF Croft it should not be confused with another RAF Croft which was up north and used by the RCAF during the war.

The last pic shows where the H block living quarters were, I could never understand why they were demolished years ago and the main building was left to rot?
