If you look on Google Maps it's still there.

 

The last time I looked (Just For Fun) it looked like military vehicles on one edge of the square. ??

I was in the MT in Gort and we had L/Rovers then and before that as well, I was on the advance party from Gort to Chelsea and we were driving Land Rovers, haven't seen a Champ since we were in Pirbright in the Fifties ?
