Swynnerton Training Camp
Swynnerton Training Camp
Back entrance to Swynnerton army training camp. The site was a massive ordnance factory during World War Two. In the 1980s the base was used by nuclear weapons convoys for overnight stops (using this gate), and was also the scene of a controversial exercise when a demonstration of how to clean up nuclear contamination apparently used real nuclear contaminated material.
