    There were supposedly several in the area, I chose to search for two that were relatively close together. This was the first one I found

    Im not sure if the hatch covers are original or a later replacement. It was very fragile and rotted. (Please take note if visiting)

    On entry was an L shaped tunnel (each arm of the L being about 20 feet long) which lead down three steps into to the first corrugated iron roofed room, with a pipe leading to the surface (possibly for radio areal?)

    The main stanton type shelter lead off from this, slightly offset from the tunnel, with the entry hatch at the far end.

    The second hatch cover. There had been some wooden debris thrown down the shaft.

    The shelter was in very good condition for its age. With little or no sign of vandalism. I hope it remains so. I replaced both covers before departing to look for the the next one.

    I searched for quite some time for the second base nearby, without success. I did spot this hidden in a hedge in the area.

    An ammo box dated 1942. So I must have been close.

    A very enjoyable, if somewhat cold day out. One thing I learnt is not to leave your sunglasses on the surface when going into a tunnel, as when you come out and are dazzled by the bright sunlight, its quite easy to tread on them (RIP 1 x Raybans:mad:)
