Melton Mowbray

Military site : non-airfield

Advance Ammunition Parks used by the RAF were often enlarged to include USAAF munitions. These dumps which might exploit natural cave systems or dense woodland, also included concrete structures as a means of protection. Some were also used to store poison gas bombs or chemical weapons.

The exact location is unknown, but is understood to be in woodland between Gaddesby and Great Dalby. Munitions were probably shipped via the now defunct Great Dalby Station.
