Eastcote MOD (RAF Eastcote)
Note from Ruislip Online - This article was written by a visitor to the site for inclusion in an DTI staff magazine in around 1985. It has been very slightly edited.
As far as Ruislip Online, the writer and the writers direct superior are concerned there is nothing contained within it that is sensitive information. If you have any reason to think there is you are invited to contact Ruislip Online. The photographs were taken on 17th November 2005 and all from areas that are visible from the public highway/pathway. Permission was sought to take pictures "on site" but this was refused, and it was suggested that the "Press Office" in Blenhiem be contacted!
It is debateable as to if this is Ruislip or Eastcote but it is thought that the actual site is located in Eastcote. It is included here as it is still of local interest.
If you have any memories or pictures why not send them in...???
