All of the major RAF and USAF airbases around the UK, together with key installations such as AWE Aldermaston and AWE Burghfield, are connected to large oil refineries around the coastline using a massive network of underground high pressure pipelines and Petroleum Storage Depots (PSD), referred to as the Government Pipelines and Storage System (GPSS).
For safety reasons, the locations of these pipelines are marked with identification posts which look rather like bird feeding tables with brightly coloured roofs. The Depot supplying RAF stations and other military installations in the North Cambs & Peterborough area is located here at PSD Sawtry
The depot was built on the site of former POW camp 59 The smaller of two fenced compounds is to the left of the entrance and contains a couple of old PoW Accommodation type huts that have been vandalised and or neglected along with a lot of cleared space, but these were the least interesting buildings so I neglected to photograph them.
I did a couple of uninterrupted visits here late 19 but the place is fairly secure compared to earlier reports. The obvious entry points have gone & the site is dotted with armidillos.
Anyway on with the pics.
As with prev reports all the main underground works are flooded
Thanks For Looking
