We are pleased to offer a small number of places on a rare expedition to spend a whole day on Orford Ness including working up close to the famous Pagodas in the Cold War AWRE area. You will be accompanied by rangers from the site who have been photographing it for many years. Their combined experience and knowledge will help you get the most out of the day by offering historical knowledge of the site and creative and technical advice.
