Ynyslas was selected by the Air Ministry as a missle-testing site for solid fuel rocket systems from 1945 onwards. A road/farm track dating from the period of the Ynyslas Development Company (1860s) was upgraded and concreted over (see NPRN 408007). The road served as the main access to the core of the military research camp comprising workshops, assembly shops, accommodation huts and ancilliary buildings. Two of these buildings survive in the field (see NPRNs 408010 and 408011). The footprint of others can be detected in aerial photographs (RCAHMW Collections 99-cs-0921) and on ground by a network of raised hut platforms (12 huts laid out in a grid), rubble piles, uncovered drain holes and grassed over trackways.
