Yes, a brief item on the local news said they had moved to a new base in Gloucetershire, not far from where I live.

Interesting snippet, a mate of mine who helped with some development work at the start of the project, revealed that an early version of the design used a formula 1 engine to power the fuel pump for the rocket motor. One helluva pump to need a f1 engine as the prime mover. Not sure if this is still the case with the latest iteration of the design though.
