Sorry what am I on about?! Obviously not 2011 because the building was demolished in 2009 hahaha. Date estimated 2008 maybe

Before joining the navy my father Ernie Wishart transported hundreds of loads of sand from the west mainland to this site. He never found out why or if it was used. Maybe it was still there when the building was demolished!

Very interesting, possibly used for sandbags/cement for defence walls, etc
