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.

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.

Being in the localish area was a great opportunity to revisit this place with Capture Photography, six years after my previous visit back in 2014.

POW Camp 116

It’s noticeable, I haven’t explored much the last few years so with the screw it attitude I head over to what I thought had long gone. With a few baffled people telling me otherwise, over to POW 116 we went!

After a long drive stuck on the glorious M25 for hours on end, the Grove air raid shelters were nearby so took my chance for a quick solo mooch.

RAF Bawdsey R3 ROTOR Bunker

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.

RAF Bawdsey

It’s been a long time coming this location, literally being on my list for as long as I can remember being a slight bunker nut that I am. With a date set we set out on the two hour trip to the bunker and although having a good explore on surface level, we were baffled when it came to access into the bunker down to the rather well sealed concrete caps on both entrances, including the air ventilation shaft.

Heavy Anti Aircraft Gun Battery

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.
