RAF Driffield - July 2015

In the final days of Team Weasel we decided to cast our net deeper into Yorkshire, so myself Judderman and the intrepid explorer ZerO81 set off into the mythical areas of North Yorkshire never ventured  - passing hamlets with wonderful names such as Bugthorpe and Wetwang.

RAF Driffield opened in 1918, originally called RAF Eastburn, the RAF based closed in 1977 and was then turned over to the British Army for driver training and renamed Alamein Barracks. In 1992 the RAF again took over the site until closing as a base in 1996. Some areas of the site do however remain active to this day.

Time for a mooch, in major derp. It should be noted that if the local vandals put as much effort into graffiti as they have in smashing up the place they might have produced some decent art - but they sadly haven't.

So if you like smashed up bogs, shit graff, corridors this is the potter for you and its worth the mooch for the other bits on site.

All in all not a bad potter, so I'm going to give it a 6/10 and leave you with this little gem as found in the gym of this derelict airbase
