Well this wasn't exactly the walk in I expected, it looks like the fencing has all been recently renewed and the ground floor windows and doors all have metal grills and plates over them, I have no idea why because there is nothing of any value left inside and the scrap value of the metal protecting the site is probably worth more than the land and buildings

Royal Army Ordnance Corp Marchington, was built around 1957 and dealt with the supply and maintenance of weaponry and munitons and various other military equipment until 1993 when the corp amalgamated with the Royal Logistics Corp.

It was also a Central Vehicle Depot during this time until the barracks closed in 1970, and the Territorial Army took over until finally closing the site in the early 1980s.

Marchington also housed the Army`s fleet of Green Godesses which came under the jurisdiction of the Office Of The Deputy Prime Minister

The grill gave a diffused glow to the light
