Interesting to see the camoflaged third runway too.

For those that dont know Bradwell Bay, the top of Pauls image above is east.

Cheers

There was an article in AR a while back, describing the earlier range and landing ground.

The now defunct Nuclear power station is only on one small corner of the airfield, and doesn't really get in the way. There are numerous private property/no trespass signs everywhere (and no hare coursing etc.) From what I understand the owner of the control tower doesn't like it being photographed.
There are numerous pill boxes all around the site and along the sea wall, there are also some nissan huts on the far side around the back of the Othona Community.

Started off my marathon weekend of airfield visits today with a trip to Bradwell. Spoke to one chap who said we could more or less go where we wanted to.
There is quite a bit of the airfield site left to see, Not so much though of the dispersed sites. A few gems lurk about to be seen tucked away in undergrowth.

But one is the St Cedds Cafe, this is a former dispersed site building of so far unknown use, but if you are visiting the airfield do pop in for a hot meal or fresh sandwich.
