Like all military bases closing down and going into disrepair. Such a shame. Still at least it lasted long enough to get "Fosters" in there.

Nice Pic Frothy. Love the Vought Kingfisher. We had one or two of those too.

Here's one of them and the Pilot just alighting is actor Sir Ralph Richardson.

Been past many times but never went in, Went in there this time to get out of the freezing wind.
