The history of the RNAD depot at Milford Haven has been covered a few times before but in short it opened in 1939 and was used as a depot for naval mines and other munitions and stores.

The site closed down in 1991 with the remaining staff being transfered to RNAD Trecwn. It was used for some time as an indoor arena and a banked track was installed in one of the larger buildings.

Got to visit while I was back home visiting the folks for Easter.

This is where the standard gauge railway tracks entered the site.

This door is about the only thing in this transformer block that isn't
trashed.

Overflow from the lower dam

This feeds a system of concrete channels that runs down from the reservoirs in the woods to the main set of tunnels before disappearing underground.
