‘Project Cleansweep’ – Beyond the Post-Military Landscape of the United Kingdom – By Dara McGrath

In late 2011 while reading a newspaper in a local pub, I came across an article stating that the Ministry of Defence had launched an investigation into 14 known sites across the UK that might contain residue of chemical and biological weapons. On a subsequent visit to the UK, I decided to explore some of these sites, photographically. In the meantime, my research started to uncover more and more of these sites had at one time had been used to manufacture, test, store and dispose of these weapons.
