Visited with Treads, Mookie and my friend Emma.

OK this is the 5th report I've posted on Heyford so you must get a bit fed up but seriously Upper Heyford is so MASSIVE you simply do not know what is gonna be round the next corner whilst you explore and even though it's mostly stripped there's always something worth picturing in most of the buildings I kid you not. What makes Heyford so special is always the little things; finding the mini-Pyestock air turbine, the shelters, artwork, natural decay and all the other bits and bobs.

Was an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Met up with the tour dude, watched a 20 min video of Upper Heyford 1918-1994 which was brilliant, had a nice talk whilst he showed us round the small but great museum. As for the tour itself it was great fun; as I said we saw the mini-Pyestock turbine, an aircraft shelter (one of around 50), the weapons store and the secret intelligence shelter. Still lots more to see though - I'll defo go on another tour, not to forget I'll be shooting for a band here!
