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:

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:

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

A staircase...
