L-R: Jacquetta Hawkes, Professor Calder, Canon Collins, Frank Cousins and Emrys Hughes. Aldermaston in Berkshire became a nuclear base in 1950. The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), was launched by the philosopher Bertrand Russell and Canon John Collins (centre) and annual marches from Aldermaston to London followed. Aldermaston is the headquarters of the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) where Trident submarine-launched nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles are made. It has close links with nuclear weapons laboratories in the United States. CND still campaigns against the base's activities. (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
