    This is my first report so go easy on me :)
    So i first found this place about 6 years ago popped my head in once had a look and left. 6 Years later i finally go and have an actual look with my camera. Getting in is fairly easy has one of those concrete blocks stopping the travellers setting up camp, or anybody else for that fact. Located just north of Winchester up the A33 towards basingstoke. As you can see in my pictures the main building now looks like it gets used by people to have sex, with porn mags and underwear everywhere.

    So i've spent a few others looking around the net at the history on this place this is what i have found -

    Northington Pumping Station was built as a booster set for the strategic oil pipeline that was constructed in World War 2 between Hamble in Hampshire and Aldermaston in Berkshire.

    The building is military in origin and was substantially constructed in order to withstand blast.

    The main building is separated into two parts, one housing the electric motor with a drive shaft connecting to the pump in the adjoining plant room. Very little remains of the pump or its motor save for some foundation plates and pump bearing housings.

    The pipeline still runs to this day between Hamble and Aldermaston but without the need for the booster at Northington.

    So after more research on the net it looks like there are a total of 4 buildings, i only found 2 due to the site being heavily overgrown, so perhaps a visit back in the winter to undercover more. Thanks for looking B

    Love a good old military site! Nice one!

    Any ideas when these dirty dirty people go there to have sex? Preferably a day and time if possible. It's so I know when to 'avoid' the place of course...

    Sorry @Tomw1989 completely missed you comment! Probably in the night time, someone has written times and dates on the wall. But I rocked up at about 1pm was there for an hour
