RAF Docking was a satellite airfield for the RAF Coastal Command station at RAF Bircham Newton and was mostly used for overflow from there.
A grass airfield, with eight blister hangars and one A1 hangar, was laid out soon after the outbreak of war and the first squadron to operate from there was No. 235 Squadron RAF using Bristol Blenheims for convoy escort and anti-shipping operations in the North Sea. These were then replaced by the Lockheed Hudson.



Stumbled upon this one & I missed the control tower which looks like one of the best bits.
these are the buildings I did find.

Standby set house




Now used to store farm equipment







Next was this decontamination building, now occupied by some scary pigeons



Extraction system still in place here













Now again this houses some farm machinery




Finally I had a nosey round the many bunkers on this site













Stumbled on some sort of snail orgy going on in here!



Thanks For Looking

Nicely done. This was actually one of my first explores. This cluster of stuff on the corner is a nightmare to get around. I ain't done the tower either. There is a very rare Norcon pillbox somewhere as well I want to see .

I like explores like this, off the tour bus route. Rambling about, discovering the old buildings and then the research. Great to see them. :thumb
