    In the Daily Fail today

    Eastleys Quarry at Gastard converted into secure wine storage since 1988. Handling over four million cases of wine a year, Octavian has the capacity at the Eastlay cellars to store over 800,000 cases in ideal conditions, 90 feet underground, constant year round temperatures, absence of ultra violet light, no vibration and full humidity control.

    Stone mine opened 1800
    Mining ceased 1900
    Ammunition depot 1935
    Number of staff during war 2800
    Last used by M.O.D. 1966
    Taken over by Octavian 1988
    Underground area 32 acres
    Equivalent to 18 football pitches
    Slope shaft has 157 steps
    Slope shaft is 100 meters long
    It drops you 30 meters below ground level.

    I do actually know somebody who works in here, maybe I should start badgering them for a permission visit, not aware of any reports on it in here

    It's Eastlays

    I've been in there when I used to work for Cert Logistics, who used to own Octavian.
