Visited this as part of a 1300 mile roadtrip with Bryag and Bax_ last weekend :rolleyes:

I guess everyone knows the history of this iconic site...

The Silos have been posted elsewhere by others, so I thought I'd put up a few pics of the other parts of the base...

The Control Tower - sealed up tighter than a drum :mad:

Sub-station kinda place still remains, though pikeys have had their way with the cabling :
