Several of the anchor pictures gracing these pages are from the former RAF North Luffenham site. I grew up through the cold war so the significance of this site is very real living history for me, having been the home of three USAF Thor ballistic missiles, part of a network of sites that combined to provide our nuclear deterrent.
This site is earmarked for closure and redevelopment into many thousands of homes over the coming decade, I hope to record and monitor the site throughout this period. From the project Emily triangulation posts to the reinforced launch platforms themselves.
Thankfully these pieces of our history have already gained Grade 2 protected status from Historic England.
