Urbex pics: RAF Upwood

Did my first Urban Exploration shoot on Friday. Great fun! I'm hoping to go back a few times. I only just skimmed the surface. Apart from the hangers which are in use most of the rest of the base deserted.

here's a selection of smaller images ...

Very nice series. Do they not have some access restrictions amid the decay?

No, the base is open. No breaking in necessary.

Even Banksy has left some stencils in there. A bonus

Whoa--that's a terrific set of photographs! While very matter-of-fact, they have real substance. While several are really stand-out, I think there's a cumulative power when seen together. I've dabbled at that sort of site and this inspires me to keep at it.
