RAF Rivenhall, Essex

May 6, 2017

I recently read this place is being demolished to make way for a quarry so I decided to give RAF Rivenhall a gander before its gone forever. As I expected there really wasn't too much left, most of the buildings have been torn down and the radar tower was swarming with quarry workers so I decided not to venture to see It up close. Nonetheless It was still really cool seeing this place in person. 
History wise, this place was built in 1943 and was used in the European theatre of war until 1946. It was released from the military in 1956 then leased to the Marconi company who had taken over all the buildings within ten years. Anyways here's some pictures of my exploration!
