    Located on the North side of Brackla Ridge, locally known as the "8 x's", the 7 massive underground magazine storage tunnels complete with platform were cut deep into Brackla Hill. Guarded by pill boxes overlooking the hill, they would protect the high explosives held within. The aerial image below gives the approximate position of the entrances to the chambers, numbers 3 and 4 later becoming the headquarters for the Welsh RGHQ in time of nuclear war. Today, numbers 1 and 2 have been filled in, only their vent shafts remaining and a little concrete, 3 and 4 being maintained to this day, numbers 5, 6 and 7 filled in, but with a lot of evidence still remaining. Later on during the war, and eighth tunnel was constructed from the Waterton site to the magazine complex, but the complex was not connected underground.

    Visited again to see if anything has changed, bit of a personal one for me as i have close connections with this place, looks like it is used less and less these days, hopefully one day we will see inside these converted cold war tunnels.
