The History
(Borrowed from Wiki)

Between the 1960s and 1990s, the Site was the Multi-Occupational Training and Education Centre (MOTEC) which provided training for workers including HGV drivers and mechanics and hosted the RTITB National Junior Mechanic Competition 1987.
The majority of the runways have been removed leaving only small tracks however nine hangars still are present spread out over the site and near a local village. A local Wartime Aircraft Recovery Group also occupies a section of the site.
In 2002 it was proposed to build a centre for asylum seekers on the site.
The site was sold in 2014 to the Greenhous Group.

The Visit
after an early start with hangover from my moms wedding the night before we set off me, Loocyloo and Redhunter, and Acid-Reflux (Totally didn't pay us to say this)...
So after a very long walk around the 5ft high corn field! and the slippery entrance we were over my fluffy socks soaked... well everything was soaked!
So first we headed for the water tower! after LoocyLoo knocking rust into my eyes off the ladder! we made it to the top and as we got to the top a car pulled up with a rather wide gentleman with a little white westie after waiting it out we realised he wasn't leaving!
So we made our way down to carry on, after a few close misses he was close to catching us! thanks to the little hide outs we made our way to the storage location for the BEDFORD! the main reason for our visit and after spending 5/6 hours we got caught by a eastern european lad that looked about 15... he didn't actually ask us to leave he just kept hinting that he wanted us togo. He was timid to if you bump into him be nice... anyways Enjoy!​

Hi fellow explorers,
I have recently started working for greenhous who have bought lots of land at RAF High Ercall (if not all of it). They are going to use it as a hub for storing and collecting cars to be delivered to customers so expect the security to be beefed up and there will be security 24hrs a day so be careful if your planning a visit.

I was there in January and there were lots of cars and vans being stored there then... security certainly wasn't tight, we strolled about for a good hour until a young lad in a high vis strolled over and we left... to be fair though most of the buildings have been demolished so really nothing left for explorers to see there.. Bedford is long gone, hopefully somewhere safe :)

The Bedford is now sitting polished and all shiny by the main gate house
