Within walking distance of the ledgendary Cane Hill asylum lies this bunker. It was built as a public shelter for world war two, but was not really used all that much. It was then sold to a telescope factory, who found the constant warm temperature necessary for precision optic manufacture. In the seventies they moved out, and I believe it was used by a garage for a few years before being sealed. The pictures aren't very good, as I was in rather a hurry. I will go back there sometime - although I have been telling myself that for quite some time.

To enlarge any of the photographs, just click the magnifying glass that says "all sizes".

This odd sticker was fixed to the fridge. Who on earth would be analysing these tunnels?

This is a wall of solid chalk - they were going to make the tunnels longer than this, but the plans were scrapped.
