The following are the YW Emergency Control Bunkers I have heard of:

Basement of YW HQ in Bradford (refurbished and still in use)
Basement of YW Offices in Skipton
Elvington (York) subject of this report
Chellow Heights (also Bradford area)
Cottingham (Mill Dam site?)
Langsett (Stocksbridge, Barnsley)
Nutwell (Cantley, Doncaster)
Deighton (Huddersfield)

Also shared with Civil Defence Bunker (ex WW2 RAF bunker) corner of Grove Road/Skipton Road, Harrogate [Building now used by NYCC Education Department]

Hard to say really but its a mixture of remembering what I hear, and asking the right questions at times ;) Sub Brit visited Cottingham a few years ago.

Toni you don’t happen to know if there is a bunker of any type on the Thames water mogden works ?

built pre war......they have a ww2 air raid shelter there but always wondered if there was more
There’s one in Chatham, and it’s apparently in immaculate condition!!!

Yes there is a beauty down in Chatham, it’s the southern water Emergency Control Centre.

Are those pictures of the main entrance? I was under the (I now presume incorrect) opinon that multi room bunkers would have a walk in door for access with the hatch in your pics being the emergency exit?

Civil Defence Bunker (ex WW2 RAF bunker) corner of Grove Road/Skipton Road, Harrogate (next door to fire station - Building now used by NYCC Education Department]

Was opened up earlier this year for inspection then sealed up again! There is another Civil Defence bunker under the old town hall in the town centre now under private ownership and sealed.

Hi mate, which one in Donny? I’ve been in the one at Donny, I’m just curious to see if it’s the same, please private message me as I wouldn’t want the location been blown as it’s a real gem.
