raf upwood | the usaf have left the building

Outside this hanger, we found this small Ready-Use Pyrotechnics Store. The original steel doors have been ripped off and are lying on the ground.

It is rare to find a triple room store, since they were usually built in pairs.

The main Bomb Store was kept well away from the main airfield, and was actually about half a mile away across the runway. Itís on my list of places to visit in the summer, along with the former bomb store at RAF Wyton, which has also been sold to a developer.
