Royal Observer Corps Monitoring Posts are underground structures all over the United Kingdom, constructed as a result of the Corps' nuclear reporting role and operated by volunteers during the Cold War between 1955 and 1991.

In all but a very few instances the posts were built to a standard design consisting of a 14-foot-deep access shaft, a toilet/store and a monitoring room.The most unusual post was the non-standard one constructed in a cellar within Windsor Castle.

Almost half of the total number of posts were closed in 1968 during a reorganisation and major contraction of the ROC. Several others closed over the next 40 years as a result of structural difficulties i.e. persistent flooding, or regular vandalism. The remainder of the posts were closed in 1991 when the majority of the ROC was stood down following the break-up of the Communist Bloc. Many have been demolished or adapted to other uses but the majority still exist, although in a derelict condition.

Some pictures i took on the day:

Finally this is the video footage i took while i approached and then finally entered the bunker.Please bare in mind i was on my own when doing this and was really worried about getting trapped in bunker so it took me a couple of minutes to build my courage up before i entered.

Haha. I think the torch going out would be the least of your worries. The lack of beer and toilet roll would be higher on my list I think.

Looking forward to your next post anyway :thumb
