aquila | dumb procurement

Aquila, in many ways, was a rather different exploration. Firstly, I was offered the chance to explore the buildings, neither having discovered, nor researched the location. Secondly, when I’d been given some details, I couldn’t find anything else about it. MOD Aquila was a secret, silent place.

And thirdly, before even putting one picture up, people have been e-mailing me. Aquila piqued the curiosity of many, so I was somewhat privileged just to have got in through the main gates. And given the secrecy, and the rules governing the site, I doubt if there are any other photographs of it.

Almost a month after I took these pictures, the site was demolished. New, much needed, but ultimately dull housing is now being constructed. Welcome to the final days of Aquila.
