I was in Caerphilly for a ten minute job and decided that I deserved a break.

I was looking at a culvert which runs to the castle but it was busy around the infall so I decided to head over to the AAOR bunker which was 10 minutes away.

I parked in a small carpark nearby which was labelled on Google maps as a car park for swingers, I must have been visiting on the wrong day because there was no one else around. When I realised I wasn't going to get a blowie I headed over to the bunker.

All the doors are now sealed up so I pulled out the 28dl teleporter pad and was inside in seconds.

The rest is just me walking about taking pictures and I had a piss in the toilets.

Anti-Aircraft Operations Rooms (AAORs) or Gun Operations Rooms (GORs) as they were known during the second world war owe their origin to the Air Defence of Great Britain (ADGB) organisation of the late 1930’s. (The name change occurred during the 1942 re-organisation of AA Command with both titles being in common usage).

Later the former AAOR became the main BT war headquarters for Wales. The distinctive curved glass galleries were stripped out, and new dormitories, air conditioning, canteen etc., were installed in the 1970s but the work was abandoned before completion and the bunker is now disused although the adjacent BT radio site remains in service.

Ha but srsly tho is there any cameras because last time I went to some place abandoned police showed up
Also, to get inside the area do you climb over the gate because I went up there earlier and tried going around. It turned out there is a fence around the whole thing. I didn’t want to go over the gate from past experiences sketched me out

Just popped up today and gate is locked and new fence all around perimeter going about a quarter mile down the road ..
Also at gate sign saying it’s now private property and owned by a trust( I forget name of..)
And if access to antenna is required to call number below !!
Had kids and dog with me so didn’t fancy climbing over will have a look in week..
Fence looks like it might be alarmed , but not sure ....

Just thought I’d mention I’d seen a new fence and signs up around site .
Didn’t realise ..
Maybe I should stick to walking Dogs ..
