Bunker hunting

here's my first report so please be gentle;)

Closed in 1968, all surface structures have been demolished though the underground bunker "probably" still remains. After researching the post I met up with the farmer who has owned the field for the past 30 years.... he knew nothing about the post ever being there.

After some discussion with the farmer and a guy who used to plough the field back in the 1960's, we managed to pin point where the post would have been located.

The farmer seemed very interested, the field currently has crop's growing but around the end Sept the field will be empty. I spoke to him if there was anychance of actually locating the bunker he said he could get hold of a digger and took my phone number.

Not holding out much hope of finding anything interesting as the bunker is now probably completely knackered, but never the less still interesting to see what lies beneath.
