SY8086 : Winfrith

taken 12 years ago, near to Winfrith Newburgh, Dorset, Great Britain

UKAEA has been restoring Winfrith’s environment since the early 1990s. Around half of the civil nuclear research site has already been released for commercial use, and decommissioning will be fully complete by 2020, when Winfrith will become the UK’s first major nuclear site to be fully decommissioned.
Be warned that photography of the site is not permitted. I was pounced on by security and after deleting pictures I had already taken, was able to negotiate this shot. Security at Winfrith is provided by the Civil Nuclear Constabulary, an armed police force that specialises in the protection of nuclear materials
