RAF Chilmark was a unique ammunition supply depot secretively situated in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Featured site movements include both standard and narrow gauge locomotives at Chilmark and Dinton as well as the unique narrow gauge railway from the privately owned Chilmark Stone Company Mine situated within the RAF site.The RAF utilised huge quarry workings (which supplied the stone for Salisbury Cathedral) for a massive underground munitions store for WW2. The site was decommissioned in 1996, but in August 2005 the International School for Security and Explosives Education (ISSEE) moved into part of the main Chilmark site - what is now the UK Centre for Homeland Security.
Visited with Pirate & a non member, cheers to tommo for the map and chris for some intel :thumb

What a find this place was! Chilmark is the most picturesque village you could think of, and as you pass the postman pat like surroundings and start seeing signs for Chilmark Stone, country lanes flanked by barbed wire fences, and narrow gauge railway crossings, you know some MOD Business has been going down!

The lack of pillars in the quarry workings is down to the quality of stone
