    Default Twemlow (Twemloe?) Green

    I stumbled across this site. I think it was commercial but any input would be welcome.

    No details on Twemlow but I did have this aerial which doesn't seem to show the tanks as they currently are. It looks to me lmore like D1 tanks but when I look at the photo the tanks humps appear sunken - probably an optical illusion!

    Twemlow was a WW2 aviation fuel distribution depot but is now disused. In 2006 Defence Estates put the site up for sale but I haven't followed what has happened since. I drive close to there most weekends so could probably swing by and take a look one friday or monday.

    The tanks are part sunk and earth covered...not been there for 20 years and can't remember whether round or rectangular as I wasn't particularly interested then!

    Paul is good at spotting sunken vs raised structures; it's all in the shadows!

    I your B&W aerial to me they are depressions which implies that whatever was in the hole has been removed (tank?)

    But, you are right, the site visible today has quite a different layout of tanks.

    Was this site known by another name other than Twemlow?

    Fairly sure it's just been called Twemlow (the 'Green' isn't really used locally). I know of one driver who used to call it 'Goostrey depot'...but he was from somewhere down near the equator (Maidstone I think)!
