    Default Mouse's next site (and Jays)

    Hey Peeps, we thought we would finally get round to going somewhere other that the usual site in Oxford. So today we did our reccy!

    The results where very good. The place was full of still standing buildings finds where not in the 100's but where fairly good for a first trip. The place was split into different areas and we looked over a place called the "instructional area" and the "WAAF Area" These are my finds. Jay as most of you know is rubbish at posting pics, but he found a few bits worthy of mention, a US Great coat button with the eagle, British button cleaning stick and D lock for a kit bag.

    Yup its all open and has some public footpaths running across it, not the I doubt many people would go there, its in the middle of no where and unless you walking your dog I see no reason for anyone to be there. Even then, its not really near any houses and there is probably better place to walk a dog. The last part of the site we went to was next to a road and is used by Airsoft skirmishers and (stupid) Paintballers."note I was an Airsoft Skirmisher for years and never did get along with paintballers, I just don't get it, guns that look like something from a bad sci-fi film and you shot paint at each other? sigh" anyway back on topic... we say them there when we first drove past, but at 3pm we drove about again I saw they where all packing up so went for a quick look round where they were. Apart from some more buildings... the area was almost completely bare... so we know not to bother there agan. In total we looked at three areas, the last being pretty dismal, however the first two we looked at had a few good finds, they were both so big we barely touched them and will take a long time to search them properly. There is also a communal area and two sites called Site1 and Site2, which we have no idea what they would be used for or might contain So, were hoping to get back there very soon.
