This is a former RAF base which was abandoned and sold off to a private company in the 60's. Built at the start of World War 1, it was used as a bomber base, but after the second world war the grass airfield was redundant and flying from the base ceased and the base closed in 1962. It is in use today as a construction college. I was interested in photographing this to compare the buildings to RAF Upwood, some of which are the same design, albeit not the same condition. I did get busted by security, who are very active on site, so I don't recommend going here. The site is still in regular use.
