With the beautiful weather recently we thought about going on a road trip to Oxfordshire! Visited with Webbley and Silverhatch. Thanks again Silverhatch for driving! What a massive place this is. Its been done on here a fair few times now but i thought i would put the history anyway. Hope you enjoy!

Water Eaton Grain Silo is a WW2 strategic grain silo between Kidlington and Oxford, next to the crossing of the main road from Kidlington to Oxford and the Oxford to Bletchley railway line. It follows a standard pattern common to other wartime silos and takes the form of two banks of ten seven storey high cylindrical reinforced concrete silos side by side with the space between them filled by a brick access shaft. In the shaft is the associated grain handling machinery and two enormous grain driers which extend the full height of the building. It was built in the early 1940s and closed in the late 1980s.
