RAF Barnham Nuclear Store

Fascinating visit to the Cold War Nuclear Store Facility that was part of RAF Barnham. It was used to store and test the nuclear warheads and explosives for the Blue Danube bomb. It is now an industrial estate but the Nuclear Storage Area is undergoing conservation by the owners and English Heritage. Excellent and interesting visit

A restored watchtower - 4 of the 5 have been restored The Nuclear Storage Sheds - each potentially held a nuclear warhead The Nuclear Store Shed The Nuclear Storage Vault The No Mans Land between the inner and outer defences
