RAF Upper Heyford was a Royal Air Force station. In the second world war the airfield was used by Bomber Command. During the Cold War, Upper Heyford was one of the former RAF bases chosen to house the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command (SAC) strategic bombers on 90-day TDY deployments until 1965, from 1966 United States Air Forces In Europe (USAFE) tactical reconnaissance aircraft, and from 1970 F-111 strike aircraft.

This base was active until 1994 when operations were moved to other bases. Since then much of the site has sat slowly decaying away. Some areas of the site do serve uses as shops and business outlets, and the airfield serves use as a driving experience and police driving training facility. A large swathe of the site has been demolished and replaced with housing, which seems to be the fate for this section of the buildings, which appeared to have seen use as schooling and residential areas.

We were here for four hours exploring the maze like network of buildings, mostly all linked together by seemingly never ending corridors, which proved handy when a huge thunderstorm rolled in overhead towards the end of our time there! of all the explores I've done, that has been my favourite experience, just listening to the rain hammering on the roof, the long low rumbles of thunder, and the wind whistling in through the broken windows and holes in the roof.

Surprised this bit is still up, I had my 'goodbye' visit to this little area in 2016 after exploring the massive base for many years prior to it being demolished.
