    I was looking for information on the river Froome in Bristol and stumbled upon this. It says its a bunker on Woodland Road, near university of Bristol. I've searched everywhere online and can't find any info on it. Does anyone on here know?

    Is anyone in the area? Looks as if it could be worthwhile rummaging through all that loose rubble.

    Certainly looks interesting, I've found I quite like rummaging lately.

    Interesting find, I must say I don't recognise this but I'll go take a look tomorrow and report back.

    Sure?

    No. 19 is down the road a bit... https://goo.gl/maps/AXPoj8biZhS2

    However, No. 20 is over the road, I doubt the original quoted address is correct.

    Pretty sure its down about where I put the pin. I remember it being in a car park. Maybe worth taking another trip to confirm - got to go to Richer Sounds later so will have a detour en route.

    It's nowhere near a car park. Its between two Bristol Uni buildings and a little cycle lock up.

    Haha shows how long ago it was. I just vaguely remember it being in some sort of muddy/gravel car park! Assume its still back filled? Maybe worth looking for manhole covers nearby.
