RAF Wigsley is on the Nottinghamshire border with Lincolnshire. It was a satellite station for RAF Swinderby and a conversion unit for Hampdons and Lancasters shutting in the fifties. Most of the buildings still stand but have been swallowed up into peoples properties. However, if you look hard enough some are still accessible. Nature has also taken over!
Wigsley is unique as it has the only three storey control tower of this design. The tower is accessible but the ground was still flooded from the winter rains. I will go back when it is a bit dryer.
The run way itself is now home to hundreds of pigs.
The buildings shown are Stanton shelters, toilet blocks, sub station with an outer blast wall and a picket building. The picket building is located about 1/2 mile away from the main runway.
There are still plenty of places to explore.
