Take a closer look at the full range of facilities – and the acres of space we still have to fill at Westcott.Find out more
As a rocket facility during the Cold War, Westcott was built to protect its secrets from outside access. That era is now part of history, but the high levels of security remain.
Inside the park there is a comprehensive network of CCTV cameras which are monitored from the gatehouse entrance. Westcott may be a large space, but we have it well covered.
The gatehouse forms part of a management complex at the entrance to the park where the security guards and on-site team can offer assistance to all park occupiers and their visitors. This is the sole access through the 9 mile perimeter fence.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition records every vehicle entering or leaving the park. There have been a number of occasions where this recorded information has been invaluable in protecting on-site businesses.
Bob Bamford, Bruce Washington, Mick Pender and Safeer Mohammad are our gatekeepers. With 50 years of experience between them, they monitor our extensive CCTV system and provide valuable assistance and information to anyone visiting or working here.
