Well this is my first report, so fingers crossed everything goes to plan!
I must start by thanking Silverhatch for driving and being a great host!
We was trying to look at Priddys hard but we couldnt find a door open, so we looked at a map and next to Priddys Hard was a massive green tree area with 2 "Random" black squares?! we investigated and found this!!


From Wikki :-)
An ammunition dump, ammunition compound, ammunition depot, bomb dump , ammunition supply point (ASP) or ammo dump, is a military storage facility for live ammunition and explosives.

The storage of live ammunition and explosives is inherently hazardous. There is the potential for accidents in unloading, packing and transfer; the threat of theft, misuse or sabotage; and, if neglected, the near-certainty that poorly stored explosives will degrade and become shock-sensitive over time.

The site we visited, the only info i found was:

Royal Navy depots sold at auction

The hammer has come down on two former ammunition stores at a commercial property auction.
The two old bomb and bullet stores at Priddy's Hard in Gosport, have been sold for £80,000 to an anonymous bidder.

The ex-Royal Navy buildings were sold freehold at the auction, run at the Rose Bowl by Clive Emson.

The £80,000 final price was £30,000 above the guide value,

The stores, on patriotically-named Britannia Way, are 5,000 sq ft and 3,000 sq ft respectively.
