Munitions Dump

The Munitions Dump that used to be in Ruislip Manor


The main access road to the site is now the western end of Sidmouth Drive.

The railway siding from the main line ran into the southern side of the large site and was linked to the internal narrow
gauge railway that crossed the Yeading Brook at a spot more or less in line with Beverly Road.

Six of the storage bunkers appear to have been located within the current boundry of Bessingby Park.

Other than Sidmouth Rd, it's unknown if anything else remains of any of the site structures or the crossing point over the brook.
