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.
Another location that’s been on the list of places to visit for the last few years checked off and completed! Explored with the one and only RelictaSpiritus, and bumping into Tiny Urban Exploration and some new explorers.
An accidental find while picking up car parts, the tail end of a plane caught my attention which was a good enough excuse for a mooch for me.
So the first explore of 2017! Happy new year everyone. Well to say the first explore, it was the first day of exploring of the year after being kicked out of another location nearby.
A quick explore of this place as we were local in the area after finishing another local explore. Great place to look around and some interesting history on the place, worth noting that this was clearly kept secret as the site is secured with high fences and razor wire and not even marked on the map! If your still reading and haven’t heard of this place yet, here’s the history!
Return to this one to finish off the sections we missed back in October last year. Absolute massive site, however still not sharing that location 😉
American military forces were first stationed at High Wycombe in 1942, shortly after the United States’ formal entrance into the Second World War. So urgent was the action that Wycombe Abbey School, situated on the land that would become the station, was given three weeks to find new facilities; failure in this effort led to the school’s closing, until the independent girl’s school was returned by the US in 1945.
Unfortunately a a semi failed attempt as the site is now near totally under water and without scuba gear or at least some very good waders, there was no entrance to the tunnels or any rooms at all. With the extent of flooding we cannot imagine it will ever be accessible.
