A fantastic job has been done here restoring this former ROC HQ and UKWMO Sector HQ back to its former glory - I'm sure you will agree with me. The bunker ceased to be operationally in 1991 and restoration begin around a decade ago - a slow and costly process when you don't have someone like English Heritage directly funding everything you do (as with York ROC HQ). If you have been to the bunker in York you will see they are pretty similar looking on the inside apart from this one had an extension built to it to include the Sector Ops Room and a few other rooms when it became the Caledonian Sector HQ for the United Kingdom Warning and Monitoring Organisation. Everyone is please encouraged to 'like' their FACEBOOK PAGEso you can see what is going on.
The amazing thing about this place is that most of the stuff actually works. Thanks to some very clever people, Teletalks are able to work in posts and communicate here. WB1401's are able to be broadcasted the Attack Warning through the Carrier Control Point. Great news for restored ROC Posts. I really should have waited till the next day before taking pictures as I was feeling pretty crappy after driving a hell of a long way, my pictures don;t do the place justice - especially not the Sector Ops Room, and they are a bit grainy. They are still waiting on installing the fire alarm in all of the building before they can open too the public. Not long to go now though.

Enjoy,

De-contamination room on the top level.
