The series of shots show the bare steel infrastructure of the Bushfield army training camp near Winchester which was in operation during World War Two and was used to train Royal Green Jackets recruits in the sixties. Another image shows a pillbox bunker alongside a canal in Berkshire. Other pictures show a crumbling radar tower that was in operation between 1941 and 1943 to monitor shipping near a Tilbury on Thames minefield and the abandoned Women’s Auxiliary Airforce section of RAF Stormy Down, Wales which shows a picket post and empty dark air raid shelter. The spectacular images were taken by an urban explorer who wished to remain anonymous.
