Nuclear weapons convoy: February 2016

A nuclear weapons convoy left AWE Burghfield in Berkshire on the morning of Wednesday 10 February. After an overnight stop in Yorkshire it travelled on into Scotland on the A1, passing Edinburgh and Stirling before arriving at RNAD Coulport at just before 7.00 pm on Thursday 11 February.

The return trip began on the morning of Monday 15 February, with the convoy passing Stirling before travelling along the Edinburgh Bypass, where it was photographed by a number of members of the public before stopping for a rest break at Glencorse Barracks at Penicuik. It then continued along the A1 past Newcastle before stopping overnight again in Yorkshire. The convoy arrived back at AWE Burghfield early evening on Tuesday 16 February.

Nukewatch Policy

We think that it is very important that Nukewatch continues to monitor the safety of UK nuclear warhead convoys, and that Convoy dangers are highlighted to the general public and those along its routes.

But we still think it's important that Nukewatch is not seen to be helping potential terrorists. So we do not put technical information on the websites such as vehicle number plates and short break locations in lay-bys. We only put out convoy movements in advance to our own network. This also means that we would not alert the media in advance, except to contact known and trusted journalists who might come along to report a convoy passing.
