Initially the low-level radioactive waste was put in clay lined trenches, similar to land fill techniques. As late as 2007 techniques changed - vaults were created and waste compressed and added to containers. Recent planning permission means that the site will be used well into the next century, with a closure date of approximately 2130. The site also has shared usage with the Ministry of Defence for naval gun testing towards the sea.


As the site here has been closed to the public since the Second World War, it will be close to 200 hundred years that the wildlife has remained untouched. Obviously there remains tons of low level waste in the ground and still a level of pollution from when it was home to a Royal Ordnance Factory. But still a really interesting ecosystem that hasn’t been researched - or not that I have discovered anyway.

The land around the site is fairly typical Cumbrian coastland, moors and waterlands. The site is set back from the coast - I guess as a protection against erosion. And this strip is now grazing land.

Loads of wildflowers all around this particular Low Level Waste Repository (LLWR). And at dusk a badger crossed my path, about 10 metres away - unfortunately it was too quick for me and disappeared before I could take a photo.
