    Fraser Range/HMS St. George, Eastney, South Coast – Feb 2015

    Visited with Mookster on a quick South Coast Touyr, after a Fish and Chip Lunch, we walked up a nudist beach of all places, to reach this rather trashed location. It is certainly not worth a big drive but good for an hour or so, some good graff and some some not so good graff here.

    History Borrowed and adjusted from TrevBish @ 28 Days

    HMS St George was a shore establishment for the Royal Navy until its 1980s closure.

    Fraser has previously been used by the MoD as a firing range and for gunnery training for a significant period of time after the 2nd World War.

    In more recent times the emphasis on training dissipated in favour of research and development of electronic and radar detection systems complementing DERA’s facility at Portsdown.

    Since the the Defence and Evaluation Research Agency was privatised and subsequent formation of QinetiQ in its place, the latter have sought to make more effective use of the corporate estate.

    As part of this process QinetiQ activities on the Fraser site have been moved to Portsdown Technology Park and the site has been declared surplus to requirements.

    The Planning Committee resolved to grant permission (subject to conditions - not yet met) on an outline planning application (A*26996/AP) to build 3 large blocks of flats, 131 apartments, directly overlooking the naturist beach. Although they have yet to submit a detailed planning application or to start demolishing the existing radar station.

    The site had a more modernised and bland part as well as the older parts

    Wow, this place has really been trashed and heavily graffitied in the last year or so. It was always worth a visit when it had the nice big tower at the side.

    We generally don't talk about access on public message boards. If you only live 20 mins away it's no stress to pop down and have a look, judging by the graff I would say it will be pretty straightforward!

    Like Dweeb said, what is there to lose if you only live 20 minutes away?

    Erm no, I own a plant hire company in Southampton & we have equipment on hire to a ground surveying company working at the Old Manor - hence the access to this place. No Pikeys around here lol!

    Many thanks for these - I always wondered what it looked like inside.

    Oh god. my eyes. This place is trashed. Think they should just demo it now before it becomes a hollow shell for hollow people
