Afternoon all,

This site has been on the list for ages, and knowing that its been done loads before, and is basically just a shell now, it was still quite an enjoyable explore. Visited with 2 non members and then we met 2 other people exploring there too.

Bit of history from Wiki.

Royal Air Force Upwood or more simply RAF Upwood is a former Royal Air Force station adjacent to the village of Upwood, Cambridgeshire, England in the United Kingdom.

It was a non-flying station which was under the control of the United States Air Force from 1981, and one of three RAF stations in Cambridgeshire used by the United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE).

Much of the RAF Upwood is unused, closed by the Ministry of Defence in 1994. Most of the station was vacated and the land and buildings sold off to civil ownership.

In 2004 Turbine Motor Works purchased a large amount of property on the former base including the four C-type hangars. Their plan is to convert the property into a state-of-the-art jet engine overhaul facility. Together with the Nene Valley Gliding Club and the Air Cadet Squadron, this facility will ensure that the former RAF base will continue its aviation legacy well into the 21st century.

Part of the facility is now used by Airsoft players.

Is picture 18 from Upwood? The hospital operating theatre looks out of place, by virtue of no graffiti
Yes, it is from RAF Upwood. There is a medical building on site, which until I was there, didn't know existed. It is completely trashed inside and I was surprised to see the operating theatre intact. It was so dark in that part tho and there wasn't much else in there to take photos of
