The Royal Logistic Corps Museum readies for the move to its new home

We attended a small farewell party yesterday evening. It was to say thanks to staff, museum friends, and volunteers at the closing of public access to the Royal Logistic Corps Museum in Deepcut.

The new museum of the RLC opens in spring 2021 at Worthy Down Barracks near Winchester. In the meanwhile artifacts, records, heritage military vehicles will be progressively transferred from Deepcut to the museum’s new home.

In the photos below is Simon Walmsley thanking everyone at the farewell party, and a photo of the museum team. Below the photos is a short video of me interviewing Simon, who thanks the Borough for being its home for 25 years, and describes the plans for the new museum

Don’t miss visting the Royal Logistic Corps Museum before it closes on October 31st 2019

For 25 years the Royal Logistic Corps Museum has had its home in Deepcut. Along with the closure of Princess Royal Barracks, the museum is heading for a new home at Worthy Down Barracks near Winchester.

The Museum will close to the public on October 31st 2019, after which its contents will be progressively transferred to its new home, which is expected to open in spring of 2021.

If you haven’t previously visited the museum in Deepcut now is a good time to go. Here are a few photos I took of the museum last week.

Reckon actors soon to arrive at Netflix film set off Deepcut Bridge Road

Noting, at the end of January, that Netflix are constructing a film set in Deepcut, it looks as though the set build is near completion and that actors will arrive soon.

See HERE for my earlier article, in which I mentioned that the film set is a recreation of a medieval village, the building of which completes in March, after which filming begins, lasting till September 2019. The film is in the Netflix Cursed series, and here’s what they say the film is about it,

In this fresh take on the Arthurian legend, teenager Nimue joins forces with mercenary Arthur on a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.

Here are my latest photos of the site, taken yesterday. Expanding my photo of the film set you can see there are wooden tiles on one the buildings, and there’s a door into the closed set, so we’re unlikely to see any of the scenes of the film. The direction sign is sending all the film trucks via Frith Hill Road, many of the trucks can be seen through the hedgerows.

Netflix film set off Deepcut Bridge Road in Surrey Heath

What I’m writing here isn’t news to many of you, whom I know are both more curious than me, and also better at knowing about local goings on.

Anyway, here goes. There’s a film set being built on the Ministry of Defence land at Frith Hill, just off Deepcut Bridge Road in Surrey Heath. Today I walked past the site and took the photo below.

A bit of googling reveals that it’s a site for a Netflix film in their Cursed series, and here’s what they say the film is about it,

In this fresh take on the Arthurian legend, teenager Nimue joins forces with mercenary Arthur on a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.

The film set is a recreation of a medieval village, the building of which completes in March, after which filming begins, lasting till September 2019.

The Royal Logistic Corps Open Day hosts Army families, friends, and visitors for an action packed afternoon. The 2018 Open Day, held on Dettingen Fields in Deepcut on Saturday 7th July and celebrates the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Logistic Corps.

We enjoy the day, meeting soldiers, and friends from the RLC Museum, eating a Gurkha curry, and for me getting up close to the array of military equipment.
