The whole Radwinter site where the road loading facilities were put onto a state of 'minimum care and maintenance' as were all other sites that were 'mothballed'. I understand that there had been quite a lot of money spent on the site not that long before it was closed. Certainly when I went to look at it in 2012 the galvanised steps leading down to the site were still in good condition.

At the same time as the Radwinter site closing, all the original D1 tanks were emptied as was the one C2 tank, although that was later, brought back into operation. Only the tanks built in the 1970s were kept in operation to supply Standsted.
