    Default Cremyll Oil Storage Depot, Plymouth, July 2018


    1. The History
    Can’t find a whole lot of info on this place. The only thing I can find is that is was a former Royal Navy oil storage depot. Beyond that I can find no details.

    2. The Explore
    First came to my attention when I saw Newage’s excellent set from here. Very easy to find and get to but very over-grown in the Summer months. It was hard getting into some of the buildings as I wasn’t in the mood to do battle with the brambles hence a limited set of pictures. Subsequently found there is a far more impressive place near by so a revisit is in order.

    3. The Pictures

    It’s very overgrown:

    And graff’ed up:

    This looks like the remains of a former landing pier:

    This was the thing that I really came to see:

    The one remaining oil storage facility:

    And that roof:

    The graff’s pretty decent:

    Incredible contrast to the earlier reports. Winter visit required!

    Some nice images there, did you look into the nearby oil storage tank just to the left of the path on the walk in? I'm sure there was a car in there!
