A nuclear warhead convoy left AWE Burghfield on Wednesday 2nd December at 8.30 am, arriving at RNAD Coulport at around 2.30 am the next morning. Passing through Reading it then travelled East on the M4, subsequently taking the A1(M) to travel northwards.
At 3.25 p.m. Nukewatchers spotted the convoy turning off the A1(M) onto the A61 in North Yorkshire, heading for a break at RAF Leeming which it entered at 3.45 p.m. By 8 p.m. the convoy was observed leaving the A1 onto the A69, 9 minutes later entering Albemarle Barracks in Northumbria (10 miles west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne) for another break. Later, continuing West on the A69, the convoy made its way to the M74 and was observed by Nukewatchers at several points on its trip northwards through Scotland. It then took the M8 around the southside of Glasgow where it was caught on video by Scottish CND. After crossing the Erskine Bridge it continued up Loch Lomondside, reaching its destination at around 2.30 am.
The convoy was thought to have returned to the Atomic Weapons Establishment by 11th December.
