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.
Having taken a while out from urbexing while caught up in a few of life’s many distractions, but finally finding time to explore RAF Coningsby Weapons Store with RelictaSpirtus
Yes! Finally! After numerous failed attempts, our opportunity had finally arisen to see the all too well known Bawdsey R3 ROTOR Bunker. It’s only taken three visits and roughly a combined total of 350 miles to finally make it.
Not many reports on this one and with a few related bunkers nearby we decided to give them a go. However due to the slightly snowy weather conditions outside and a very close mishap with what turned out to be a flooded ditch instead of a layby we only managed to visit this one bunker.
Nestled somewhere between Essex and Hertfordshire is a little known about cold war anti aircraft battery. Unfortunately nothing much remains apart from what I can work out are the concrete control bunkers and the AA platforms themselves arranged in a sort of semi circle formation.
