This is a view of part of the old RAF Harwell site, the road you see is part of the airfield perimeter road and just past the grass stripped area is the old Bomb Store where the bombs were kept in bunkers during the war. When the UKAEA took over it was used to store stuff like old radioactive material. When it was realised what was there it was cleared and decontaminated, to top that the building you see is the local school so great care had to be taken. The stripped area is where a archaeological dig was done and Bronze age round houses were found along with a roman building.
A few months later it looked like this
This was the beginnings of a housing estate that was being built, I meant to go back at intervals to update the progress but never did. I noticed the houses were going up from the office I work out of so I popped up for an update and this is how it looks now.
