During the Gathering we learnt a great deal of old and new information about AWE Aldermaston, Burfield and the Convoys that sometimes pass through the A34 including the Oxford bypass; with films and power-point presentations.
We stayed in a Reading church as there are only small places suitable for camping near AWE Aldermaston itself.
We had a sparkling guided tour of the perimeter by one of our number who has climbed the fences more times than anyone else and could tell us a lot about what takes place at Aldermaston
We also gave out leaflets in towns and villages about the proposed Hydrus Project which is waiting for planning permission. See:
for an explanation of this expensive and dangerous proposed new facility.
We were pleased to blockade Boilerhouse Gate for two hours - it only opens at peak times.
