SU5264 : Greenham Common fuel depot

taken 9 years ago, near to Headley, Hampshire, Great Britain

Greenham Common fuel depot
Greenham Common fuel depot
The former Greenham Common airfield (here actually in Crookham Common) had about 18 fuel depots spaced out near the perimeter. These are the remains of the most easterly one, with fuel storage tanks underneath this concrete apron. Presumably the logic was that if one depot was put out of action it didn't affect the others, so the airbase could continue to operate.
