Once again Night_trained amazes us with more duff info. Maybe think before you type you pleb. 22 and 26 Engr Regt are in the middle of a huge refurbishment being undertaken by Aspire. Go onto their website if you want to see what the accomodation is going to be like. Whilst some of the hangers are staying most of the living accomodation and working areas should be getting replaced very soon. Having worked for Aspire I can honestly say the accomodation is the best I've ever seen. As for the area it's not too bad if you can drive otherwise you are screwed. Bournemouth is 1 hour away, London an hour by train, Southampton, Salisbury, Basingstoke and Reading are all within an hours drive as well. It's not a bad area with not much crime outside squaddies kicking the snot out of each other. I've been in the area for 9 years now and really like it.
