There must be someone here who can give me a bit of info on Depot 90 in Sennelager. I have been here just over two years now and am still finding odd things in the woods.
It was an old ammunition depot used by the Germans in the WW2. The British took the place over and used it as a sub-depot up until its closure in 1996. Several explosive items have been found there, both in the woods, and in (relatively) recently discovered underground ammunition bunkers.GeordieHussar said:There must be someone here who can give me a bit of info on Depot 90 in Sennelager.

I heard about that Hyster thing as well when i was doing my JCB course there. Funnily enough the cross-country bit of it was around the Depot area.General Melchett said:Stay out of the woods and stick to the roads!
I remember finding "things" in the woods back the early nineties. Plus of course the fork lift in the lake and stories of prisoner burial sites.
GH,GeordieHussar said:Thanks for the replies guys, I already know a lot of what you have said about the Depot. The things in the woods are the old railway sidings and the buildings that used to be there but have now been dropped onto themselves. I have a copy in my office of the survey that was carried out and it does make interesting reading but I still think that there is more about the site that isnt being told. I know all about the imploded bunkers and what is in them and they are out of bounds to everyone for their own safety. I have tried to find info on the site on the net but found nothing which suprises me so am trying to find out more via you guys who worked in the place over the years. Hope you can help me.
