The numbers of personnel based at RAF Menwith Hill are given below, and are current as of 8 November 2017:

US Military

33

US Contractors

344

US Civilians

250

UK Military

7 (5 RN; 2 RAF)

UK Contractors

85

UK Civilians

486

The number of GCHQ employees is included in the overall figure for UK civilians as it is Government practice not to disclose the number of personnel working in intelligence at specific locations.

The US authorities do not release a detailed breakdown of US civilian personnel; therefore the overall total of US civilians has been provided.
