    The Gravesend civil defence bunker was built on the site of a WW2 air raid shelter in 1954 and operated as a command centre to co-ordinate local rescue and emergency services for the sub-division of Gravesend, Northfleet and Swanscombe, Kent in the event of a nuclear attack.

    The bunkers of the era were operated by local civil defence members and council officers under control of the town clerk. The bunker was closed in 1970 and the new control centre built under the civic centre.

    The bunker has now been lovingly restored by a group of volunteers, the 'Thames defence heritage', who have laid it out as it would have looked in the 1950's & 1960's and run regular visits, the bunker is full of excellent memorabilia including a mock ROC post in one of the old dormitory's!
