    Default Padworth Rail Sidings June -2014


    Yet another delayed report! Visited with TBM and Friends.

    Very little on this but what I do know is it was possibly used by The Atomic Weapons Research Establishment as a fuel sidings for trains.

    The site is very trashed and looks to have been closed for at least a decade. Not much left but an ok mooch for an hour or so.
