Marlborough Lines is a British Army installation on the former site of RAF Andover in Hampshire, England.

History[edit]

Marlborough Lines was built on part of a former airfield on the western outskirts of the town of Andover, RAF Andover, which had been established in 1917 and closed in 2009.[1] In 2011 Army Headquarters, which started to take responsibility for more than 2,000 military and civilian personnel, was established at Marlborough Lines.[2]
