    well it was just over 2 years ago now that me and broken managed to crack the thames bunker in blunsdon..........roll on 2 years later and its open again and not much has changed all be it a little bit more water has come in through the emergency hatch, the lights are still on with diesel still in the tank but its still in really good condition and worth seeing

    history

    originally designed to house 12 thames water workers who would live in the bunker for up to 30 days, testing and treating the nearby reservoir water making it clean for all to drink, as with many of these utility bunkers they where never really needed but then we can say that about alot of bunkers back then and luckly for us they did press ahead and built it so it gives us something to play in now

    i never really got any good pics of this place first time round and with only a 18-55 lens it was nice to get back in and do it with a wide angle this time round, its been well covered last time but i thought i would chuck a report up this time, this is only about half a mile from my house so every now and again i pop up there to check on access and luckly this weekend was a good weekend to check it, so a visit with a couple of local lads and vwdirtyboy was on the cards one evening :thumb


    this is a mixture of pics from now and 2 years ago
