Longcross Barracks – Surrey

Longcross Barracks closed in 2000. Nearby was a military test/research site but they weren’t directly associated with the barracks.

Not a very interesting explore, this one. Just a few buildings, all stripped out. I imagine it is a bit like exploring an old TravelLodge or something.

    This place was ok, was posted here three times. Foned memories, sad to see it as it is as I had to sweep the bloody leaves away when I was in the shit. Drove pased it the other day and thought of of the others that I worked there. Left in 1995 for a new trade but this place will be always in my mind. hope Barrowhills officers mess is still there if not with the army.

    The Officers Mess is still there looking over the golf course. I still live in Albury Close, which is still owned by the MOD. Alot of filming goes on over there now, currently Law and Order, and also Mclaren use the test track for the testing of the F1 cars. The Military still test vehicles on there now.

    Hi everyone

    I lived in the officers mess for a few years I was the mess SGT. then I moved down to the SGT mess and was the Admin SGT for a few years before I left in early 80s . The swing that is still on the big tree out the back of the sgt mess was put there by a SGT Bill Hamilton for me one Sunday afternoon after we had watched Gone with the wind . At the time my name was SGT Garbutt. I too had some fantastic times there
