UK WW2 Ammunition store - Ramsgate - Jan 07 Report.

Recommended Posts

Visited this place with Lynton, Miss CSI, and SteAlTh last year, it has now been sealed up, but a interesting little explore, Enjoy the pics.My camera wasn't the best then, had a cheap old argos number, the others have better ones.

The tiny hole we squeezed through.

Lots of old bottles and rubbish lying about, we think that when pleasurama was on the site they used to put some of there stuff inside this place.

this is hms fervent...

the ammo store apparently used to be a couple of roads back and if you check out thanet underground they have listed the book they found with all the information in it.

The main reason it was believed to be the ammo store is that the 1st post on this place was done by fortknox0 on 28dl and he titled it ammo stores as thats what we believed it to be at the time!

here are a couple of ma piccys...done on a rubbish old digital back in the day but not the worst pic ever! visited this place with fortknox0.

after a load of research we found out about an ammo store in ramgate so went looking then remembered this entrance! we got there to try find a way in or see if we could get over the wall and it had literally just been knocked down by builders....this was before the wooden board had even gone up...so off we went, we later found out about HMS fervent and that the ammo store was actually further into ramsgate but i never found out where :cry:

anyway the pics

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
