After many false starts, I managed to complete an explore, albeit at a well known location. I'll start off with RAF Nocton Hospital.

Historical facts:
Nocton Hall is a historic listed building in the village of Nocton, in Lincolnshire, England. The US Army's 7th General Hospital was based at Nocton Hall during World War Two.

In 1940 with the outbreak of WW2 it was taken over by the Air Ministry, remaining an RAF hospital until its closure in 1983. In the mid 1980s Torrie Richardson bought Nocton Hall, the surrounding wood, woodland, grassland and cottages. Selling the cottages on for redevelopment allowed him to develop Nocton Hall as a Residential Home. The home ran into difficulty and closed in the mid 1990s, and was sold by the receivers to new owners, they also bought the RAF Hospital site from the Ministry of Defence.
