Having seen a post on this place by The Fox, a few weeks back I decided to have a look myself as it is fairly local.

I wont re-iterate what has already been said but this was part of the Clyde Defences, which also included decoys and HAA batterys. As such it was designated as a

World War II Anti-aircraft Ordnance Depot and Emergency Equipment Ammunition Magazine​

The RCAHMS link states there as being only one 18 bay magazine present on site, which leads me to believe that the roofless bunker mentioned in The Fox's report was never completed (this would also explain the rubble contained within, as there may never have been a roof covering)

Upon first entering the site, next to Bonded Warehouses, this is what can be seen. Years of moss underfoot does not bode well for cheap boots.

Suprisingly enough the years are getting the better of the place

I had always assumed that the dirt was driven up against the containing walls as protection. Never thought that there would be a wooden supprt structure underneath.
