I have already posted the theatre that was on this base and shortly I will post another entry on the church that is on the base.

I have already made an entry on the blog for this location see:  for a more extensive write up on the base.

The base officially closed in the early 1970’s.  A private company has taken over a fair bit of the base.  They use the runways, the hangers, the barracks, and most of the support buildings which makes it not possible to explore those areas.  The areas that we have been able to see include hundreds of duplex houses, schools, post office, community centre, church, theatre and various other buildings.

Our return visit will more than likely be our last as we move on to see other new locations.  Enjoy!!
