Visited today with The Ancient Mariner, although not strictly UE it is still relevant.

Kelvedon Hatch needs little explanation. It started life as a RAF ROTOR station and was later transformed into an RGHQ Nuclear Bunker. Decommissioned in 1992 and now open to the public as a museum.

It could house 600 people who would be responsible for local government after the event of a nuclear attack.

For those who haven't seen Kelvedon, it is worthy of a visit. Very relaxed atmosphere, with payment "on trust" being the order of the day. A photo pass is available for £5.

Onto the pictures...

Great visit, great company. An interesting insight into a byegone era of the Cold War.
