Nice to see somewhere a bit older than the usual Victorian Palmerston Forts after having seen plenty of those. Explored with...

    Lead or Rumour info - Gillingham equestrian centre

    Don't really know much about this place, I've heard there was a fire which closed it down also heard that it was a police shooting range and I've found bullet casings and used shotgun shells. There are signs which say shooting in progress, the place is quite destroyed and full of pigeons.
