Nothing to see from roadside (top of bank). Google Earth link puts it inside a modern building. Destroyed 02/54 according to OS trigs archive. As of 24/4/12, the Bing maps link shows older imagery zoomed in, newer imagery (adjacent building demolished) when zoomed in. Using the historical imagery function on Google Earth, the building has been there since 1999. Latest Bing imagery (2010?) indicates the buildings immediately to the W have been demolished.

GoogleEarth image Placemark coincides with building. Image date 21/04/2007.
Bing image Apparently older image (but not old enough...)

Not on 1:25,000 OS explorer. Would have been sited within the old Admiralty Surface Weapons Establishment buildings.
