Explored with UrbanCreed.

Been wishing to explore this site for ages and did a lot of research on it a while back but was informed it was closed a long time ago. So when I found out it was open, I was already to go and wasted no time going over there. This was my first explore with my new camera so did a lot of playing around to see what results I could get.

This bunker was build at the start of WW2 to hold 2,535 people, Although it could hold double that if needed. And was closed in 1945.
