Bushfield Training Camp, Winchester

“Firing Range at Bushfield Camp Looking into the open ends of two adjacent U-shaped brick walls having pits in front of them. Someone who trained as a National Serviceman at Bushfield Camp between 1951 and 1953 has confirmed that this was firing range. Bushfield Camp was an army training camp functioning during WWII and also used to train recruits to the Royal Green Jackets regiment between 1961-64. The internet is strangely silent about its history. It is totally derelict today. The area is the subject of an ongoing debate as to its future use.”

I can’t really find anymore information on this place, if you do happen to come across it please let me know!

The Visit

Well it’s fairly easy to find no restricted access. It’s a real shame these places get trashed, not much left but always still worth a visit before it’s gone. Really overgrown, graffiti everywhere. Still a few out buildings around the site worth having a little look.

  1. Hi UrbanX,

    We are looking to film at the Bushfield Army Camp near Winchester and we were enquiring how it is you went about asking for permission? Also, we are still unaware of where it actually is so would love some feedback from you. Great pictures by the way.

    Kind regards,
