Virtual Earth map of Padworth Common GPSS fuel storage

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The UK is covered by several underground fuel pipeline networks, including the Government Pipeline & Storage System. The GPSS supplies all fuels to the UK and US military in the UK. The two main depots involved in the storage and supply of these fuels are at West Moors near Wimbourne in Dorset and Padworth Common between the Aldermaston and Burghfield nuclear warhead factories. Fuel is stored in huge underground bunkers covering hundreds of acres.

Just north east of AWE Aldermaston, around Padworth Common, you can spot a cluster of no less than four GPSS depots. One of them on the eastern side is the main depot run by Serco Gulf and Babcock Engineering. The other three are located to the north, south and south west of Padworth village.
