    Hey folks haven't posted much lately as I've been ill for the past few months! Thought I'd post some of the stuff I have managed to do!

    This is the bunker at Corstorphine in Edinburgh. It's been badly burned. It goes down 3 flights of stairs to the bottom. I think it burned for days before anyone even notticed. I know one of the fire fighters that put it out.

    History of the UK's Nuclear Bunkers

    SCOTLAND

    In the mid seventies Scotland was split into four zones:

    North Zone was the former RAF "Rotor" station near Anstruther in Fife. This is now an excellant museum and well worth a visit.

    East Zone was the former Regional War Room in Kirknewton which after disposal became a nightclub and was recently put up for sale.

    West Zone was the Army's former Anti-Aircraft Operations Room near Torrance House in Calderglen Park, East Kilbride which is now used by the park's department as an equipment store.

    Central was Scotland's Zone headquarters. It was located in the affluent area of Corstorphine in Edinburgh. This had formerly been Scotland's Regional Seat of Government, (RSG 11) in the early sixties. Before this Barnton Quarry had been a WW2 Operations Room within the Turnhouse sector of RAF Fighter Command. The underground (R4) site is a three level SOC built in 1952. More recently after a devastating fire in the early nineties the site has been aquired by a developer believed to be James Mitchell, the owner of the Anstruther museum.
