RAF Holmpton visit 2016

As part of the 2016 week away in Hull from the 8th to the 14th May, the group visited the former Cold War bunker at RAF Holmpton. The bunker was built in the 1950s as an early warning station as part of the ROTOR Radar Defence Programme. Located just south of the village of Holmpton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, RAF Holmpton remained a part of the Defence Estate right up to 8 December 2014 when it was sold into private ownership after 62 years of military service. The site runs to about 36 acres (150,000 m2) and comprises a number of surface structures along with a secure 35,000 square feet (3,300 m2) command bunker which is about 100 feet (30 m) below ground.

Our party thoroughly enjoyed the visit to RAF Holmpton and would like to thank all the guides etc who made the visit so enjoyable. We hope to make a further visit either individually or as an organised party.
