Origins and History of NAG

NAG emerged as a result of widespread concerns within local communities about the safety and impact of operations at the Atomic Weapons Establishments at Aldermaston and Burghfield. In March 1993, following the publication of the Greenpeace report ‘Inside the Citadel’ which exposed a catalogue of accidents and errors at Aldermaston, Reading Borough Council decided to organise a two-day community inquiry at Reading Civic Centre into the local impacts of AWE.
