Airborne Airsoft are proud to add another illustrious venue to our portfolio of training areas included in our Milsim Total War series – Bramley Ordnance Depot, later known as Bramley Central Ammunition Depot.
This is the training area used by elements of 21 SAS and we have been fortunate enough to be allowed to operate from the venue. The camp was opened on the large areas of scrub land in north Hampshire during World War I for the manufacture and storage of ammunition. To enable both safe manufacture and storage of munitions, well spaced railway tracks were built both sides of the Great Western Railway line connecting Basingstoke and Reading. The tracks were connected with each other at their northern and southern ends, and the tracks on either side of the running line were connected with each other by means of two tunnels under the GWR running lines. The tracks in the depot served various factories and stores, and the scale of the depot can be gauged that in a site measuring only 1.25 miles (2.01 km) from north to south, there were over 30 miles (48 km) of track: enough to cover the distance from Basingstoke to Reading and back.
Following closure of the ammunitions depot, the facility was renamed Bramley Camp. Sub divided into three areas as training facility. Area A is the smallest (At a mere 170 acres!!), where parts of the ITV1 series Midsomer Murders has been filmed. In Area B, located near to the camp’s main base, there is the shell of a Wessex helicopter, adjacent to this there is a respirator test chamber. In Area C the Channel 4 television series Scrapheap Challenge was filmed, but this has now been removed and the site is undergoing soil treatment.
With numerous ammunition bunkers, underground fallout shelters and buildings and heavily wooded tracks the training area equates to over 160 acres of in game real estate to fight over and it is not for the faint hearted but if hard core milsim is your thing, why not come along and join in the war!
