Hi folks I am new to this site ok... I am giving an update of of RAF Goldsborough.... this bunker has been pumped out this last week! It was open for 3 days so a massive industrial pump could pump it out... took as I say 3 days to pump all the water and muck out... when I enquirer to the Mulgrave estate the operation was done so an internal safety inspection could be carried out.... I myself have always wanted to see inside this bunker...but it looks like it will never happen.
Can I ask if any of you folks have been inside and have any pictures that you could share with me..
Thanks

Simon

Pretty sure it burnt out in the late fifties and flooded pretty soon after that. I've never seen any on line. Have you asked the Mulgrave estate if they took photos?

That is correct. I'm in the area today so I might have a drive over. One thing is for certain it would not be a nice or very safe place to look around.

Hi folks yep I asked the Mulgrave estate who said no photos were taken Grrrrr!!! The only internal pictures are in a book called ‘defence of North Yorkshire vol2’ when it was pumped out in 2000 for the DOB project. It’s 250ft long and 65 ft wide.

Sorry no pics, however I stayed at the surface house many years ago in 1977-8. I did go in the bunker at that time and it was not flooded, you could actually go down the staircase as it was used for coal storage at the time. After that a steel plate was put over the stair head where I think there was a also water main. Its possible It was deliberately flooded to stop people going in at the time.

An update so no internal pics thinking someone somewhere must have some,, So after talking to folks nearby they tell me that when the bunker was constructed they tapped into a natural spring for drinking water etc and a pump was running 24 hours a day pumping the water out... even after the bunker was decommissioned they left the pump still running until around 15 yrs ago then if was switched of to stop folks going in for a look...
