Vehicle testing station in former World War II store

This large triple stores building, now used as a commercial vehicle testing station, is one of the few survivors from the largest military supply depot in the south-west. This was one of eight buildings this size. Its neighbour has been demolished but its hugh concrete raft floor can be seen on the left. In the foreground is the site of two transit sheds which had direct rail access from the sidings.
