ⓘ Baker Barracks

The barracks were established, on the site of the former RAF Thorney Island airbase, in 1986, when 26th Regiment Royal Artillery moved on site. Named after Field Marshal Sir Geoffrey Baker, a former Royal Artillery officer, they have been home to 47th Regiment Royal Artillery, armed with the Starstreak missile, since 1989. In January 2008, 12th Regiment Royal Artillery moved to the island upon their return from Germany.

A public footpath circles the site. However, in order to access this area, visitors are required to show data proving identity such as a passport in the army, who control access, because the live-fire exercises are held at / near the site.

In 2009, the airfield was used as a test track for a British-built steam car hoping to smash the long-standing speed record on land. Team British steam car challenge test driver don Wales, nephew of the late Donald Campbell and grandson of sir Malcolm Campbell.
