    Visited here recently with Romperwoman. Entrance was straightforward - thanks for the tipoff. No sign of any security on site, and the place was in good condition considering how long it has been closed - over 10 years. I guess the fact that it's military puts the pikeys and chavs off a bit.

    From the road, the empty gatehouse:

    Inside one of the buildings at the rear:

    Rear of main building/courtyard entrance:

    The main entrance foyer:

    Stairs in reception:

    All the employee's must have had pseudonyms - no-one could really have this name could they?

    All the keys were left in the internal doors:

    Many of the wooden block floors have expanded and rippled:

    We didn't try the telephone:

    The library. All the shelves were bare, but some of the section names were a bit sinister - along the lines of 'How bombs work' and 'How nuclear bombs work' etc.

    The location means that the front of the building has impressive views over the bay:

    Back out of the main building and this is the access road behind it:

    One of the many empty workshops:

    Follow the arrows:

    The 'Official Notices'. Most were from the 1970's! :eek:

    A staircase...

    ...leading to a conference room:
