    Arrow RNAD Trecwn, Pembrokeshire - January 2012

    This is my first post on anything like this so I hope it's ok.
    RNAD Trecwn is a decommissioned Royal Navy Armaments Depot, located south of Fishguard in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
    Built in 1938 to store and supply naval mines and munitions ordance to the Royal Navy, at its height during the cold war 400 permanent workers were deployed at the site, housed in an MoD built town infrastructure. The site had an onsite narrow gauge 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) railway, built using copper to reduce sparks. The weapons were both delivered to the site and then distributed using standard gauge rail to Fishguard, Neyland for Milford Haven, and latterly Pembroke Dock.
    The impenetrable vally.

    No one around despite see security around the main gate, so we broke cover.

    Strange, yet not suspicious very old "building"? located just off the main road system of the complex

    Outstanding scenery unfortunatly locked away from the rest of the world by the 8ft spiked fences surrounding everyinch of the complex
