I feel so proud to be British
Also, as I live in Wiltshire and have visited almost all of those sites you mention here, I just want to point out that Rudloe Manor does look like a massive hotel, but its operations are underground. This is one of the UK's most secretive facilities that is in the public's view.
Also, RAF Machrihanish in Scotland is a Navy SEALs base location in the UK. It has also been linked to the Aurora and F-117a's.
Reply on the old board by Bagpuss iam not impressed i have friends at some of the locations have you forgot about the ira
My brother works as a groundsman for Rudloe Manor....
He tells me there is a secret pipeline linking all government sites in the UK along with a transport network. Apparently helicopters fly along the route of the tunnel 24/7 to ensure there are no suspicious activities. This is a major fuel line for the Army and if someone where to destroy / blow it up there would be catastrophic consequences.

Kent: Army - Sir John Moore Barracks, Shorncliffe Camp, Folkestone
I've been there quite a few times. It's a training camp.
There are two more camps I've been to in Kent as well.
Invicta Barracks, Maidstone, Kent - a large Royal Engineers camp with a lot of equipment and vehicles. Currently undergoing a lot of building work. Some Gurkas (sp?) are aslo stationed here.
Rifle and tank range, Hyth, Kent - I don't know it's official name though.
I've also been to some other training areas throughout the South East but I don't remember their names :-/

Do you know how old this list is?
I just wondered as it has RAF Cottesmore down as a station for Tornado's but it stopped being the training base for the tri-lateral Alliance(UK, Germany, Italy) a couple of years ago and is now home to the No.1 Squadron of Harriers:
There is also no mention of Staxton-Wold up near Scarborough, Yorks.
www.raf.mod.uk... (scroll to bottom of page). Its the oldest operational radar site in the world apparently.
North Luffenham in Leic. did also several years ago do some sort of special training, although I cannot confirm it was definitely SAS.
Liked the list though, will give me some new places to check out.

RAF Thatcham was in fact MOD Thatcham. A major storage facility that provided everything from tentage to weapons and from vehicles to ammunition.
I am sorry but you are very wrong. MOD Thatcham was in fact an RAOC supply depot. RAF Thatcham was a small fenced off self contained unit within the RAOC depot, I know because I was stationed there but that is all I am at liberty to say.

Why would secret bases be know to any of you?! As civilians you are not given information regarding any establishment or facility that falls under military law or protection.
For example, Ordernance survey maps are blank on maps to prevent knowledge of "base" and "camp" details. To prevent terrorist activity etc. You might as well say that Dartmoor is a gigantic Nuclear establishment as there are signs telling you to remain on the footpath.
