RAF Barnham 94th Maintenance Unit (Nuclear Bomb Store) photos and virtual tour

RAF Barnham was home of the 94th Maintenance Unit, this was where the payload of the UKs first Nuclear Deterrent the “Blue Danube” was maintained. The payload had a very short half-life so every few weeks returned here via truck from the southern V-Bomber sites for maintenance.

There was a sister site at RAF Faldingworth that maintained the northern airfields but this is the only complete example remaining more information can be found here

In 2022 with permission from the site owners we took a couple of hundred 360 photos, I’ve used a small selection to create a virtual tour of this amazing location, please enjoy.
