I was in the area and had time so had a look.
This was a ROTOR station built in the early 50's and closed in 62/63. The whole place is in poor condition, thanks to fire damage and rust!
A howling wind and noisy cows in the bungalow made me a bit edgy whilst inside the bunker

The guard cows were'nt happy with me being there

I was going to have a look at the other wartime buildings on the next hill but Farmer Giles was there in his tractor, also a birdwatcher kindly reminded that i was on private property!
Thanks to Kingelvis for the advice:thumb
