The Royal Military Academy (RMA) at Woolwich, in south-east London, was a British Army military academy for the training of commissioned officers of the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers. It later also trained officers of the Royal Corps of Signals and other technical corps.

The RMA was founded in 1741. It was intended to provide an education and produce "good officers of Artillery and perfect Engineers". RMA Woolwich was commonly known as "The Shop" because its first building was a converted workshop of the Woolwich Arsenal.

A second academy, known as the Royal Military College (RMC), was opened at Sandhurst, Berkshire in 1799 to train officers for the infantry and cavalry.

Both were closed at the start of the Second World War in 1939. The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst opened in 1947 as an amalgamation of both institutions.

The Royal Military Academy is a collection of Grade II* and Grade II listed buildings and a local landmark for Woolwich.

Strange one this, i was out and about recce-ing a couple of other sites, ended up on the roof of one at 2pm but couldn't for the life of me find a way in, next site to recce, still a bit early to even try it and happened to stroll past this place behind the hoarding and thought id pop in. Wasn't even sure if it had been reported before but the last report is from about 5 years ago i think. Couldn't even get into as much of it as i would like as its currently being converted into homes. Most of it is locked down pretty tight and to be honest im not gonna keep checking the place for openings into the rest of the site so thought id stick it up here, i mean how often do you find a derp in London. Maybe some of all the London noobs will have a pop at it as they don't seem to be doing anything else...?

Try and spot the show home garden and windows if you can...
