Old RAF retreat in Troodos ?

I last visited Cyprus and stayed at the RAF camp in Troodos over 40 years ago. We will be in Cyprus late summer and wondered where about in the mountains this camp was and if it is at all being used or now derelict ?

There is a British base near Troodos Square and another right on top with big white golf balls,. There is at least one other camp up there which is either Greek or Cypriot National Guard.

OK many thanks, I do remember the big white golf balls were above the camp, so will have to have a scout around later in the year. This one had tents over flat concrete bases. It was those tents we stayed in. There was also on site a restaurant, games, library complex for visitors ?

The present British base is further away near a British church in the woods that is still in use, weddings a speciality, the other camp is closer to the golf balls, I have not been to the bases so I can not comment.

I am sure I will remember it when I see it, I still have quite vivid memories of the entrance and layout. Very grateful for your comments.

Troodos Station is still very much in use just off Troodos Village square!
