It never stop to amaze me what you can find in the UK! This is a scale model of the Mohne Dam used by Barnes Wallis to test the ideas behind 'upkeep' (the bouncing bomb), which led onto the famous Dambusters Raid.
Finding these types of sights is kinda special. It connects you with the past in a way a book or tv show never can. At this sight there is something quite special to highlight....The blast damage to the model. This happened during the testing and showstheeffect of the explosives on the Dam.The pictures show the before & after of the testing. It must have been a huge moment for entire team as they saw the idea work.
Its in the most unlikely of places...Watford. At the back of a new estate in some small woods. You can park up round the corner and walk to it in about 10 mins. Well worth a trip for all #ww2 fanatics!
