RAF Holmpton – Visitthebunker

I won’t bore anyone with the reason I’ve not posted for a while, suffice to say I can almost walk properly again so can get out with the camera.

My f4 Photographic chums and I went for an evening to RAF Holmpton to Visit the Bunker.  To quote their website “A simple bungalow hides the entrance to an underground nuclear bunker. Descend the stairs and venture along the 120 metre long tunnel, pass through the blast doors to find yourself immersed in the once secret world of cold war defence.” The bungalow certainly hides what lies beneath – there are 59 rooms, all dedicated to the defence of the Country and it was absolutely fascinating. We were well looked after by John, Carl & Sylvia who gave us an insight into what happened there. It is WELL worth a visit – we’ll be back again, thanks guys.
