    Not sure why there aren't more reports on this place! I know loads of people have been here but it's a massive site so everyones photo's must be fairly different.

    Orford Ness is a peninsula formerly administered by the Ministry of Defence, which conducted secret military tests during both world wars and the Cold War. The Atomic Weapons Research Establishment had a base on the site, and is believed to have developed the firing mechanisms for nuclear devices there.

    The Orfordness transmitting station is located on the peninsula and it broadcasts BBC World Service across the North Sea to western Europe and Radio Nationaal to Holland. The site and building were previously used by an experimental military over-the-horizon radar known as Cobra Mist.

    The writer W.G. Sebald discussed his experience of visiting Orford Ness, likening it in appearance and atmosphere to a post-nuclear wasteland.

    I've been very good and limited the report to 13 pics...:p
