The camp is situated 6 miles North of Helensburgh. Helensburgh can be reached from Glasgow by train, for £5 return, trains leave every half hour from Glasgow Queens Street (Low level station).Or the 216 from Jamaica St – Helensburgh.
or direct train from edinburgh waverly to helensburgh.
You can catch the 316 bus from Helensburgh Central train station (for Coulport or Garelochead, stops outside the camp) it only costs £1.75, and you can ask to be dropped off at the peace camp.
-F.P.C. is on the east verge of the A814 road, which leads to HMNB Clyde and beyond. The Camp is therefore visible to all traffic coming towards the base from the direction of Helensburgh.
We are about 30 miles west of Glasgow, by the Gareloch, a river Clyde estuary sea loch. Faslane Naval Base is on the Gareloch.
The Trident nuclear weapons system for the UK is based at Faslane Naval Base just down the road from the peace camp. It costs the taxpayer over 2bn every year to maintain 4 nuclear submarines with a total of 144 nuclear weapons, each over 10 times more powerful than the bombs dropped on hiroshima and nagasaki. capable of wiping out all of humanity at any moment.
They’re proposed to be replaced soon so now is the time to take action and stop another 50 years of nuclear threat, environmental degradation and waste of taxpayers money on a weapons system which is capable of destroying humanity at the touch of a button.
