Hello everyone, I'm new here and have something which has been "bothering" me for a good few months. I've never had an account here, although read many threads, so sorry if this is not the right place to post, but i'd like some information?

I drive past this location every week, yet I've never quite worked out what it is. Although, it does seem slightly strange, as it is protected by an inner and outer ring of fences in addition to there being many, many, cameras.

Now, I doubt what happens at this location is intended to be "secret", yet it seems to be hard to find any details about it on the internet and on Google maps the satellite view has been doctored, so you cannot see what is inside.

It seems to only be small however, and looks very mysterious. I doubt there's a conspiracy here, but it would be nice to know what it is used for.

Location: M55 near to Preston. "Weeton, Lancashire PR4 3"
53.80214,-2.918243
There seems to be lots of hangars or "sheds", which cannot be made out in the picture, along with many security cameras and two rings of fencing.

Might I just add, I do not think this is some highly guarded state secret, it's right next to the motorway, but it seems strange to me nonetheless.

Welcome.

Very strange indeed. Perfectly circle, almost looks like 'shutter flaps'.

My guess is either a protected resource such as a reservoir? Or maybe a military bunker or something to do with energy resources?

Hmm...

Thank you,
When driving past you see a circle of hangers or "sheds", it almost looks like helicopter hangers. Hell if I ever saw a helicopter hanger, I'd guess it would look like these.

Just to reiterate, are you talking about the white circular thing?

So... It's protected by fences? How tall are the structures?

Yes, on Google Maps it appears as a white circle, to the eye it is a series of hangers or sheds, in a circle, which are just raised above the hill slightly. The "base" seems to be protected by two rings of tall metal fencing and security cameras.
It also seems as if it is all built onto a structure, which is round, but the edges are all green, so it just appears very low when looking at it from road level, although I cannot work out if it is low, or on a platform or whatever.

If you street view on the motor way, you can make out the hangers/sheds

drmikeparker.co.uk...

That is exactly what I can see, so it figures.

Like I said, I didn't think there was anything being hidden here, but it did seem quite strange!

Thank you!

My thoughts exactly, seems rather strange.

I still swear I see a ton of hangers, but I am some distance from it on the motorway.


That's what I see, roughly, but you can't make the fences out.

Might I just add, I do not think this is some highly guarded state secret, it's right next to the motorway, but it seems strange to me nonetheless.

Not saying you are wrong but....



There are two. My question is why would a reservoir be underground in a flat area with insufficient height to be able to supply anything unless pumped. What feeds the reservoir(s)?

Hmmm, maybe.
Are you sure? It really looks like something other than water?

Plus, why all the cameras and fences?

Strange?!

OK, using the google map, zoom out and scroll down to the 'second' circle, and then use your streetview on 'blackpool road'

That looks like a HUGE door built into a hill side doesn't it?

Also:

Yeah it is a reservoir.

Oh, that explains it very well!

Here was me hoping for atleast for it to be a base of black helicopters


Cheers, atleast now I can pass by without knowing what is inside.

They say, it's best to leave the question unanswered, no fun guessing what it is anymore!

Thanks for that!

Here is the link again as that failed.

Well at least I was right that it needed pumping.

Have to say I have never seen a storage facility like that. Good find OP - sorry it was not a 'secret base'
