There used to be a narrow gauge railway on the Wiltshire / Hampshire border at Dean Hill

Not sure where to post it (and I helped set up the categories) so have put it under the nearest line

As I am sure you are aware, not the only hole in the ground in Wiltshire. Not sure when the tracks were lifted at Chilmark which was mainly used by the RAF (11MU). Chilmark was partly a replacement for RAF Fauld (21 MU) after the massive explosion in 1944. The quarries at Corsham are probably the best known, used by the army as a central ammunition depot, although also used by the other services. Not sure when the connection to the Great Western main line was lifted. Various surface sites still in use.
