Claycart Bottom
Aldershot, Hampshire

Claycart Bottom is part of the MOD Vehicle Testing area near Aldershot. The area is covered in woodland and relic heath/grassland, and is listed as a site of importance for nature conservation. Note that, as with much of the area around Aldershot, this is MOD land and so access is public but dependent upon whether in active army use of not!

How to get here:

»

Road: M3 - Exit junction 4 and then take the A331 towards Aldershot until the junction with North Camp; then join the A325 and head south-west until the junction with the A323, towards Fleet. Parking: there is a car park by the MOD Test Unit. +

Additional Notes:

»

Much of the area is covered in woodland which has thrived over the last 35-odd years, making the valley look quite different to filming. Locating the exact spot where filming took place hasn't been possible so far! (Note: from maps it looks possible that filming was actually in Long Valley ...)
