Road to Little Heath military site, Barnham
Road to Little Heath military site, Barnham
This is officially Station Road, although the station was far away at the northern end of it. It leads to the Little Heath military site, used for tank testing in WW1, chemical weapon storage in WW2 and after, then (illegal) storage of old tyres, then a tank museum, and now a company making wooden shavings for horse bedding. This photo was taken from the gate to the site, although the fence on the right encloses a larger ex-military area on that side, full of mysterious earthworks. On the left a dirt track turns off to curve round the western side of the site.

My MG ZS180 makes another Geograph appearance.

The field on the left is designated as Open Access but the vegetation growth doesn't make access easy, suggesting it is not actually used.
