Really interesting place and a bit creepy when empty Jun 16, 2011
We visited here as we found it funny that signs pointed to a "Secret Nuclear Bunker". It was very empty when we went which made the place very eerie. It did add to the fact that the whole installation was meant to be empty and would only be filled once nuclear war had hit. It's amazing to see how much has gone in to protection against such an extreme event. I really enjoyed visiting and it was very interesting.

Secret Underground Cold War Bunker Jul 21, 2009
Located deep in the Essex countryside and behind the door of a small rural bungalow lies the entrance to an amazing labyrinth of rooms built into the hillside, encased in 10 feet thick reinforced concrete and 100 feet underground.

This is where devolved central government and military commanders would have run the region had the UK been attacked and nuclear war broken out. Built in great secrecy and under strict, military security the local villagers and contractors alike knew nothing of what was concealed in this hillside or how it would be used.

From its role with the RAF where the overall tactical controller would react to a nuclear attack from Britain's enemies, through to its role as Regional Government HQ when there could have been up to 600 personnel, possibly including the Prime Minister organising the survival of the civilian population in the aftermath of nuclear war.

This bunker has its own water supply and electricity generators, BBC Studio, radar room and the scientists' room where nuclear fall out patterns would have been plotted.

Situated only 20 miles from central London, this site is well worth a visit.
