Firstly, sorry to the guys I was going to PM about this visit but to be honest. I didn't think it was going to happen. Then i got a call from the keyholder saying can you be over in an hour. Not to worry though, I'm going to visit this again at Easter if anyone is interested as it was such a big site...

anyway, a little bit of background, this would have been a regional seat of government in the event of a nuclear war. This site was stunning and totally immaculate. Wish my picture taking skills could give it credit....

sooo, on with the pics.

View from the outsite:


one of the many rooms, ok most of them were empty but in such good condition


The rodio broadcast suite for war time radio


one of the maps in the ops room


one of the huge compressors!!


also, one of the huge generators...there were 2 of these, both still completely operational. Stragely enough these were in a brick building outside the main bunker!:crazy


the massive aircon fan, this was huge!!


Air filters....still all brand new!


lastly the service ducting, I've never seen electrics done to such a high standdard, this runs the whole length of the complex.


what a great visit, wish i had more time to spend in there and get some better pics. I will post up the details for a re-visit around easter...

big thanks to Trevor the keyholder for letting me lose!!
