    1. Hi Ben,
      The lead tour guide is ex-20 SPS, so most/all of the tours contain some content/visits relevant to security. Also we have been lucky to have some ex-20 SPS veterans visit us. If you are looking for a group visit for ‘former security folk only’ we can look at arranging that also. Please email on uhheritage@outlook.com Thanks. Nick

  1. Hi Nick,
    In the ’70s I had links to several guys posted at this base, two of whom became very dear friends. They both eventually returned to the US and, sadly, one of them died four years ago and the other I have lost touch with. I have many wonderful memories of them both, our time together, the strawberry wine and pecan pie they brought me when they visited me… I would very much like to visit the base to have some sense of where they actually were when not chilling or partying with us in London or Banbury :)) May would be better for me. Could I book the photography tour? There is, aslo, a more private question that I would like to ask you. Would it be possible for me to raise that with you via email?
    Many thanks!
