MOD Kineton and its Railway History

I was challenged to look at MOD Kineton by someone who read my blog on Bicester Military Railway. This post is the result. ....

MOD Kineton developed as a depot in the Second World War. Construction began in 1941 and the depot came to occupy most of the land between Kineton and Temple Herdwyke. It was a Central Ammunition Depot, it also served during the war as a transit camp, with Polish and Czechoslovakian troops based there.
The site continues in use into 21st Century. Much of the original railway and sidings at MOD Kineton has been removed but the depot continues to be rail-served and to have a significant internal rail network.

Having been to MOD Kineton several times the same thing crossed my mind. I was surprised how well used the rails appeared to be and no weeds.
