Ok first of i would like to say that i wasnt planning on visiting this place today. So i only had my unreliable iphone :/
I may go down with my good camera if people seem more intersted in this ROC post.
The grid referance is :SU15983863
It was opened in August 1964 and then closed in 1991 due to defence budget cuts.
It was used by the Royal Observers for identifying and reporting on aircraft (a sort of rader you can say).
And what most people know is to detect and report on any nuclear bombs being dropped and nuclear fall out.

Again sorry for the photos with awfull lighting and quality but it was all i had at the time. (will go down with a better camera in future) and if any requests i will go back to the same place as its 5 mins from my house.

Its great to see something like this that hasnt been vandalised or used as a ''convineant'' toilet stop. Please if you visit dont trash the place.
Also to get there you walk across a farmers field. I got permission becuase i used to work for him. But he is a nice guy and wont shoot you :)
Feedback appreciated.

Hi are you still in touch with the landowner as i am aware this was recently set fire to and was looking to legally obtain permission to salvage any items left for the bunker we are restoring in hampshire.
