Having had this place on my must see list for quite some time and some recent pictures from other explorers giving us more of an incentive, a business trip the right direction was welcomed last minute.
With multiple Uber drivers refusing to take us to the middle of nowhere, we made our way on foot to what we thought was only a small number of air raid shelters. We were in for a nice surprise!
Stumbling across a news article about this Allen Williams Turret that had recently been listed alongside a busy duel carriageway, with the bonus of being local gave the perfect opportunity to get out for fresh air.
With the typically awful English weather raining down and much debate over heading out to explore, we bit the bullet and head out in the rain to RAF Wytons Photographic Factory.
Having heard about this plane recently and passing by en route home from another nearby failed explore, the sunset and plane combo meant we couldn’t miss our opportunity.
Exploring out to sea, sort of, a first for myself and with only a weeks planning the best tide times to head out to Grain Tower Battery myself and CapturePhotography found ourselfs at the battery.
Staying local for a change to tick off those I never got round to visiting leading us to the North Weald Decoy KQ site for a nice relaxed explore.
A revisit and the third time lucky, this time without running out of battery or loosing daylight, in fact it couldn’t have been better weather for it.
Having had my eye on GPSS Sawtry for well over a year and the opportunity arising, we made our way through a cold, wet and rainy October morning after an obligatory McDonalds breakfast.
