When we were kids we were told there were military connections to this site. The one I remember all these years later is that under the "big hill" was stored tanks and stuff.
Now i've never believed this but does anyone know what the structure was? It was covered in grass but i'm sure it was iron undereath and have huge metal dors at the end.
Also on site was a warehouse type building and on the perimiter backing onto Eccleshall Road was another buildng seperated into three rooms(?).
There was also something that seemed to lead underground. Don't know how to describe it but overground there was a long straight embankment is the only word I can come up with and at one end was an smallish iron door the route to which had been back filled with coal.
Anyone know what these buildings really where? Here
