    Default Calne (Wilts).

    Found on another forum, not one I remember as being on the list?

    Funny, it's not on my list either but my fuel depot folder already has a modern and 1940's aerial both from Google Earth. If only I could remember where I picked the location up from.

    Close to the station site but oddly aligned for a rail link.

    Probably not a storage site but a pumping station on the main east/west route, would explain why it's not on our lists? Tanks would be ballast tanks for flow fluctuations and the concrete structures pump bunkers (at a guess).

    Found in a Civil Engineering project list dated 2005.

    "Calne Pumping Station. Detailed design and project / construction management of a new kerosene pumping station at Calne."

    It's on the GPSS list as 'Calne - Fairford - Carterton, 1100 psi Multiproducts 6 inch and 10 inch and shows on the GE 1945 view.

    We haven't included what is quite a large number of pipeline connected (now GPSS) pumping stations in our aviation fuel research. Most of the depots we have recorded were independently supplied with stocks by rail, road or marine although some were on a pipeline.

    I feel another trawl coming on......
