Permission Visit down into Paddock yesterday with René, Sub Brit did another great job with the tours. Water ingress is beginning to take its toll, not only on the bunker, but on the back of my bloody jacket!!

Paddock is the codeword for an alternative Cabinet War Room bunker for Winston Churchill's World War II government located in Dollis Hill, North West London under the Post Office Research Station. It was constructed in 1939 but only rarely used during the war, with only two meetings of the War Cabinet being held there. It was abandoned in 1944.

Paddock has had various, intermittent uses since (including a brief period where what is thought to be the map room was used as a Post Office social club) but otherwise as of 2007, the site remains largely disused as it was when it was decommissioned at the end of World War II.
