The MoD base at Marchwood, is an extremely busy location, that handles the import and export of a vast variety of goods for the MoD. The base, which is connected to the main BR line, still runs to Fawley. It also includes its own private harbour, where goods are loaded / unloaded from the many ships that arrive.

From the M27, leave at Junction 2, and take the A326 towards Marchwood. After passing over 4 islands, you will join the Marchwood by-pass, which comes in from the left. From here, continue for about 1.5 miles, taking the 2nd turning on your left ( Twiggs Lane ). At the t-junction, turn left into Hythe Road, and follow the road round to the right. Upon reaching the point where you will be adjacent to the railway, turn first right into Cracknore Hard Lane. From here, the shunters may be seen on your left.

Note: As the complex covers a large area, other shunters may be hidden away from any public vantage point.

Warning: Before taking any photographs etc, it is advisable to make yourself known at the security offices, which are situated about 100 yards from the start of Cracknore Hard Lane. Failure to do this, may result in you being arrested.
