    A lot of research went into finding this place, and most of it couldn't of been done without a local man who would like to be known as 'The Engineer'. This report came from local rumours about an underground hospital on the East Works site which was later dismissed. The access to the control room took 3 trips to get it right, but it was worth the wait. I have not seen any pictures of this site and the only reference of it is from a Subbrit article back in 2007 and the layout is different from what it was described as.

    The article (by Neil Wedgbury) is a bit hazy on this WW2 bunker and Neil thinks it could either be a control room or just a bunker. With the amount of sectioned off rooms, comms room and corridors it doesn't feel like a normal bunker.

    Locals told of how the Fire service used to use this bunker to train in and this may well be true as there is some fire & rescue tape strewn across some of the burnt out areas although there may of just been a fire down here and it has since been left untouched.

    The series of rooms is about 20ft below ground and runs for about 400ft, there seems to be a comms room which has been badly fire damaged, plenty of chemical toilets dotted around the place and at least 4 main exits although 3 of them have been back filled. There is a nice section where 3 rooms are split up by dividing walls made out of sand bags (gives the authentic war feel!). A well planned air duct is used throughout the complex and a generator thingy would of been connected to it to provide fresh air to the workers.

    'The Engineer' is a newbie to the 28dysltr site and does have his own pics so look out for them in the future.

    Nuff babble, onto the pics:
