hello, a few facts about the place, it is now inactive but wont really be sold as it is of no use to anybody else,hence it is not really for sale as
It was used as a training site for US Navy, Navy seals, Airforce and Navy Air core used it and nothing interesting happened there, yes anybody who
says about the security is right is was high, because of where it was, it was in a handy area for enemy subs to drop off a trouble making beach party,
that was why, there are still the old pillboxes at all of the gates to this day, falling apart, the place was badly designed when it was built during
There was a check on ID before you had your car gone over and under with mirrors and a dog, checking for devices, there were always a couple of UK
RAF Regiment guards on the gate, as well as US Navy guards on site and very rarely Royal marines when there was a change over, other than that there
were civilian guards patroling the outer roads, and only a couple of them had a licence to carry weapons, they were quite strict about even military
carrying weapons there due to the risk of civillian staff being shot by accident.
I used to go onto site every now and then, there was a US shop, a Naffi shop, small petrol station, bowling alley, and I used to like going onto the
range, I remember going to School with American kids as well...
There is nothing there now, all the old buildings are falling apart and some have been knocked down, the big hangar is still there, empty, did you
know they used it for the Saab paper plane car advert in the 1980's..the outer buildings, guard house etc have windows covered up with steel sheets
and there is a wind turbine factory (vesta ) which I think is even closing and moving away.
The only security there is civilian contractor security to keep traveling people from going there and stealing all the metal, there is a couple of
million pounds worth of metal buildings on there to care for, otherwise they would have been vandalised.
The place is abandoned as it gets, I went the long journey down there a couple of months ago (like a 4 hour drive from me) and had another look for
old times sake, falling apart, weeds everywhere, ghost town, empty houses, nobody for miles...
