    Sorry, but it's not.

    This is Copenacre Royal Naval Storage Depot, not the 'underground city' aka Burlington etc.

    Also, it wasn't for the Queen anyway, it was for the government.

    Sorry, I was told different! This place I explored has tunnels below which lead to the 'bunker'. The access to the tunnels have been bricked and have been reinforced. There is a door somewhere in corsham called the 'red door' which also links to the tunnels.

    This place has a converted stone mine underneath, but it's not connected.

    Yes we know, it's in Box mine.

    Do a bit of your own research instead of listening to people who tell you things :p

    "The underground area could also be accessed from the south via the Hartham Park Quarries. This remains in use giving access to Pickwick Quarry. There is no underground connection between Copenacre Quarry and the main Corsham complex."

    http://www.pastscape.org.uk/hob.aspx?hob_id=1536692

    Confirmed by Nick McCamley... "Copenacre has always been physically isolated from all the other MoĎ facilities at Corsham"

    Confirmed by Nick Catford... "there is no connection whatsoever, they are a long way apart. I have been into Copenacre twice and explored everything. It does link to Pickwick Quarry which is a new quarry being worked by Hanson to the north,
