The Bunkers, Greenham Common

These are the Cruise missile bunkers, as seen from the other side of Greenham Common, near Newbury in Bershire. If you remember the 80s, you may remember the highly charged scenes of protest against the presence of the American Cruise missiles here.

The missiles are gone. The bunkers remain. Behind double razor wire fences... (which recently served to keep the public out of the Star Wars film set that appeared there).

My sketch-as-I-walk (it was a family walk on the common; time was limited) was done using a Japanese calligraphy pen with added graphite. The writing was done while, ahem, stationary. (There's a pun in there somewhere).
