Micheldever Fuel Depot, Hampshire
On a day that didn’t bear much exploring-fruit for us, we stopped off at the Micheldever Fuel Depot on our way back to Dorset in hope of something exciting.
I first saw the Micheldever Fuel Depot a few years ago on my way home from London on the train, trying to focus on the impressive concrete structure with several tunnel portals leading inside as my train whizzed past. I managed to quickly get a pinpoint location on my phone.
It wasn’t until fellow explorer, Tommo, posted a report on 28dayslater that I put two and two together and realised that was what I saw on the train! Since then it had been on the bottom of my to do list, but having had a couple of failed explores in London we decided to check it out on our way home.
Micheldever Fuel Depot was built in 1939 as a fuel & oil terminal during the war. It was last used in the mid-nineties and remains on the ‘reserve’ list, so in theory could be used again should it be needed.
CONFIRMED 29.04.2017: All portals to the fuel depot have been bricked up and inaccessible.
