    Apologies in advance, I have no skill with a camera (trying to learn!) and I don't own a tripod :)

    Visited with Rainman and Whereismycat, one wonderfully British morning!

    Brief history, it's been done a million times before so I'll keep it short!
    The Royal Navy Cordite Factory, Holton Heath, (RNCF), was set up at Holton Heath, Dorset in World War I to manufacture Cordite for the Royal Navy. It was reactivated in World War II to manufacture gun propellants for the Admiralty and its output was supplemented by the Royal Navy Propellant Factory, Caerwent. After the end of World War II, the explosive manufacturing areas of the site were closed down and some areas of the site reopened as an Admiralty Research Establishment. A major part of the explosives site became a Nature Reserve [1] in 1981. Other parts of the site were converted into an Industrial Estate; and some may be used for housing.

    Some of the photos I took on my S3 actually came out a lot better than the camera ones (probably due to a severe case of noobness) so may add those on at a later date.
