    Fighter Command's HQ. Nottingham. Nov 2010

    This is a first explore for on here i belive.

    myself and Dubkorps have today been allowed to have a explore around this WW2 RAF control and administration centre for Fighter Command's 12 Group.

    there's far to much info to copy/paste about this site so i'll throw you a couple of links.

    at first we both thought that this place wouldn't be so big as there are only a few photos of it, but once we got in and started hunting around it turns out its a pretty big unit.

    the light levels are pitch black and same again my compact isn't the greatest in low light, but i gave it a shot and so did DK so here you go,

    this are from my camera and DubKorps will upload his later today.

    quite hidden,

    so there you go, we'll possibly be the last people to have a common interest as the bunker in this condition as of now, but this bunker is going to be well looked after ;) i cant tell you how, but in the future we will be going back in to get some more photos.

    thanks for looking.
