1. The History
Can’t find a whole lot of info on this place. The only thing I can find is that is was a former Royal Navy oil storage depot. Beyond that I can find no details.

2. The Explore
First came to my attention when I saw Newage’s excellent set from here. Very easy to find and get to but very over-grown in the Summer months. It was hard getting into some of the buildings as I wasn’t in the mood to do battle with the brambles hence a limited set of pictures. Subsequently found there is a far more impressive place near by so a revisit is in order.

3. The Pictures
It’s very overgrown:

This looks like the remains of a former landing pier:

This was the thing that I really came to see:
