Ben Goldacre, the journalist, doctor and author of ‘Bad Science,’ has built a giant, user-generate nerd map of interesting places for people in Britain to visit. With help from Jo Brodie, he has compiled Nerdy Day Trips on Google Maps. The map shows all of the locations added so far, from secret nuclear bunkers to tank museums, and sea forts to abandoned airfields.

Goldacre plans to create a website to archive all of the nerdy locations. To contribute to the resource you can either add destinations directly onto the Google map, tweet it with the #nerdytrips hashtag, or post a comment on his blog. He writes:

We really want to gather as many as possible of the more obscure ones, the clearing with the abandoned factory, a strange earth feature of nerd interest, the terrifying power station, the water slide park, and so on. Our fantasy is that on any given road trip, you will be able to find a nerd stop somewhere along your route, or perhaps even plot out a nerd odyssey across the UK.
