    Can Anyone Tell Us What This Is In Bedfordshire?



    To put it into context a colleague and I were talking earlier today about where a relative of hers lives. While we talked I had a look at Google Maps and this structure caught my eye.

    My guess is that it may be a vehicle safety/testing centre but I can't find any details to confirm this.

    Any ideas?

    Google Maps link to get you nearby: What is This?

    My guess wasn't far off then.

    Google Maps gives the location as Millbrook...

    So I would presume that the feature you see is the famous Millbrook Proving Ground...the large circular feature is the high speed banked track used my Top Gear etc.

    Car test track. Top gear have done a few experiments there with older cars.

    Now that you have said that I can see the label and a link that would have told me that.
