NukeWatch UK Nukewatch monitor and track the movement of British WMD's from Aldermaston in Berkshire to Coulport on the West coast of Scotland.

Nukewatch is not a membership organisation. It is a network of individuals who campaign against nuclear warhead convoys, mainly because they are part of a system of Weapons of Mass Destruction, but also because we believe that communities potentially affected by the convoys should be aware of their existence and the risks they pose.

Nukewatch has published our analysis of nuclear weapons convoy movements for the year 2014 (available to download below). We consider that during 2014 at least three loaded convoys travelled between the Coulport nuclear arms depot in Scotland and the Atomic

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.
