Other Regions - Long Marston ex-MOD Base
On a journey out into Gloucestershire, to see a client for work, in the then-heavily flooded Gloucestershire, I
happened to notice a glimpse of a railway facility in the middle of the countryside so I decided, on my way back, to take a closer
look. The photographs below show the 478 acre ex-MOD base at Long Marston, vacated a few years ago by the British Army
Engineer Resources Unit. The site now is used for wagon and loco storage by the Avon Valley Railway, among others, and is
now largely owned by St Modwen Developments. Unfortunately, after my visit, I
discovered that the now-closed Long Marston station was sited just around the corner from here!
