    Hi, my first post - please be gentle.

    In Spring I went to ATE Swynenrton, Coldmeece, Staffordshire, in June 2007

    It was during the War a Filling Station for the Royal Ordnance Factory, having around 20.000 people at it's height of production.

    see: http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/sites/s/swynnerton_royal_ordnance_filling_factory/index.shtml for further details.

    There are around 6 Magazines in the camp, No. 3 Magazine was refurbished in 1962 as a Civil Defence Group Control and refitted agan in 1988 as RGHQ 9.1. Also there is a magazine converted into accommodation.
