Can't help you about the quarters I'm afraid. I have lived at Cranwell, and in a private house in Digby village, which is a few miles awy from the camp. MQs at Cranwell are pretty good, as the ones at Waddington (but I think they are short of quarters there).

On the downside...it is Lincolnshire.

Hi SandyChick,

I'm at Cranwell at the moment, and was at Digby in 2004.

The officers quarters are on 'The Oval' this is just off base, they are old and need looking after!!

Then there is the new(ish) airmen quarters, they are semi detached with garage, all rooms nice size.

Finally there are the old quarters, these are terraced houses where you will fight for parking, although i have never been in one they are apparently 'well built and spacious'.

Cranwell quarters are nice, some on base, some off, i'm not sure about Waddington though as i haven't been there.

If you need to know anymore let me know.
