DESCRIPTION + /

Turnchapel, Part of a 20th century naval oil fuel depot, with some surviving mid-20th century storage and
administration buildings. Evidence of Second World War activity including the site of a D-Day
hard. The site also retains buildings associated with its earlier use as a shipyard and dockyard,
with a series of 19th century warehouses. There is also considerable archaeological potential
