    This is a great report, though the site is in Buckinghamshire not Bedfordshire. Interestingly, rocket propulsion skills have endured, and rocket development still goes on at Westcott in an important way: very topical - the Juno probe which entered Jupiter orbit TODAY is powered by rocket motors which are designed and manufactured by a company which is located at Westcott.
