This is a huge brownfield site near Fleet in Hampshire. Owned by the government, the National Gas Turbine Establishment facility was used to test jet engines until decommissioning a few years ago. The machinery and buildings are unique, but following the inevitable planning arguments, Tesco’s will be converting this extraordinary example of our industrial heritage into a warehouse distribution centre.

I’m delivering some INSET courses coming up in the next few weeks, which is the reason why there haven’t been any posts here for a while. I’m hoping to manage a few surprises!
