You may have read the post "275 spigot mortar rounds found" posted in the Relics section. As I live in the area I contacted the landowners regarding the research they are doing into the wartime heritage of the estate as they are planning to stage an exhibition in 2013. I was able to provide some anecdotal information regarding the use of estate as an Ammunition Sub-Depot as I've been researching this for a number of years. I've got the relevant unit's War Diary from the National Archive, but it contains very little detail other than monthly statistics.
Therefore I'm looking for guidance as to wether it would be possible to find out any further information regarding the layout and workings of the sub-depot. Would maps still exist, and where would they be held? Would any Ordnance clearance / land release certificates still exist? I've tried e-mailing the RLC Museum but have not had a response, a search of the National Archive website only shows the unit War Diaries and unfortunately I cannot afford the cost/ time involved with a trip to London. The only other lead is checking aerial photos which is what I plan to do next.
So if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Please note that these enquiries are being carried out with the full knowledge and approval of the landowners concerned. Additionally I have NO intention of physically investigating the areas concerned.
