another cold war bunker found

its been blowing a gale now for about 7 days that and a pulled muscle in my left shoulder,resulting from a broken collerbone a few years ago made me not very enthusiastic about going cycling!,not offroad anyway,i was out and about though on the motorbike visiting friends,(the friends that make the best cuppa tea get more visits)
remember how im interested in the cold war ROC bunkers? and i did a film
well ive found another i was looking for via the very informative roc site of a well preserved one locally, if your interested in these bunkers,referred to as posts and live here in the uk do a search on the area you live,there was originally 1500 odd posts and around half of them were de-commissioned when the threat of being nuked lessened,most of these were filled in as the others were still being used,the ones in use till they were all decommissioned are mostly intact at least above ground minus the ground zero indicator and fall out monitors,let me know if you find one near where you live!
heres the bunker i found this morning above torness power station which wasnt yet built when the bunker was first built...

this post`s paint has survived well too...

but with those padlocks i wasnt going to get a look inside...

but thanks too this excellent site
i got some pics of inside...



heres the link to the page on that roc post
if your interested in all this stuff you could spend hours on that site,so much that went on in our country we didnt know about...
