Return visit, last visited in March 2008
RAF Binbrook was opened for operation in June 1940. It eventually closed in June 1988.
Unfortunatly this place is looking in a bad state, after my visit last year aswell as several years ago I have seen this place deteriorate. Has seen plenty of vandal damage, graffitti, metal theft and just general destruction by the youth of today.
After my previous visit/recce, I knew this place had more to explore.
Now I had access sorted I thought it was time to take a look inside, and it really didn’t fail to please. I really carn’t find any info on this place, all I know is at the moment its abandoned. Except for security.
Upon arriving access looked impossible, with almost every external window boared up.
The County Lunatic Asylum, for the reception of private patients and pauper lunatics, a little to the west of the Town of Bodmin on a site of about 9 acres, consists of eight blocks of buildings radiating from a centre, with annexes and detached blocks subsequently erected and residences for the various officers.
On 6th May 2006, 140 officers were involved in a raid on the Dance Academy on the city’s Union Street. It follows a five-month operation which officers say showed class A drugs are being used and dealt there.
Iranian-born Manoucehr Bahmanzadeh, 52, earned up to Â£2m a year from the Dance Academy, one of the largest clubs in Plymouth, Devon, a court heard.
Bahmanzadeh was sentenced to nine years at Plymouth Crown Court. Club DJ and general manager Tom Costelloe, 37, from Honiton was also jailed for five years.
Both were found guilty of allowing the sale of the class A drug.
So after abit of planning I thought it was time to take alook inside, nearly two years after closure. Inside was nearly untouched, except for natural decay taking over.
