    I've always been intrigued by this strange shape on the local OS map & after about 20 years I finnaly got round to taking a look a few months ago. It was only intended as a quick rekky but turned out as an 2 hour mootchy explore.

    There are about 17 ordanance storage bunkers on the site along with smaller buildings, toilet blocks & pill boxes. Looking at the aerial view onFlashearththere is a faint line which goes north & then turns to the west near the railway line so I guess it was rail connected at on time, possibly in some way to the ordanance factory in nearby Kirkby.
    The whole of the site is now industrial units housed within the bunkers with plenty of 'No trespassing' signs so a trip round the pack & across the fields with the freindly horses was in order!
    Anyway some pics:-
