Abandoned RAF airbase in West Raynham – urbex photography

RAF West Raynham was a Royal Air Force station located 2 miles (3.2 km) west of the village of West Raynham in Norfolk, England, opened in the 1930s. RAF Bomber Command flew missions from RAF West Raynham during theSecond World War, with the loss of 86 aircraft.

The station closed in 1994, though the Ministry of Defence (MoD) retained it as a strategic reserve. Having laid derelict since closure, the MoD elected in 2004 that it was surplus to requirements, and the site was sold in 2006. The site is now managed by FW Properties of Norwich, acting for administrators Moore Stevens. A number of the residential properties are now renovated and are either for sale or rental.

The site has now been given planning permission for installation of a 49.9MW solar farm with plant housing and perimeter fence, operated by Good Energy who source power only from renewables. Work is due to start early in 2014 🙁
