Second stop on the roadtrip for me along with lesbub, citadelmonkey and minty447 is the former Royal Naval Armanents Depot at Dean Hill. Given the size of the site we thought a daylight trip was called for. After a while scouting the outside and convincing ourselves that security was nowhere be seen we decided on a bold style of entrance. Within 2 minutes we could quite clearly see where security was and spent the rest of the visit expecting to get collared. If you like history here's the background. Onto the pics ....

First area to explore was the railway sheds

No rolling stock but we did find a tractor. Actually would have been a handy way to get around - the site is massive

Railway tracks are all narrow gauge

Exploring the first batch of storage chambers

Then we climbed up over the brow of a hill and ....yes.... bunkers !

Security (I assume it was turned off)

From the top of the hill you can see the extent of just part of the site

A newer surface building

Mostly empty

Bugger! Heading for No1. magazine and the nuclear compound we stray right into the eyeline of security .... and spot dogs too (well dog water bowls). Time to head in another direction and save the other bits for another day.

Flame Proof - yes I think it would need to be if any of these buildings went up in smoke.

We'd covered about 2/3 of the site in a couple of hours but there were other locations beckoning ....

a few pics of mine, on reading the sub brit gen pauln provided, the locos and stock were stored in no.4 magazine which was past the security building, i'm kicking myself now as to whether they're still there.
