    Arrow Nuclear Bunker Nottingham - March 2011

    Hi all,

    I was fortunate enough to work this weekend at a works depot for Rushcliffe Borough Council.
    Whilst working I discovered the old nuclear bunker. Now, as this is still a "live" site, I only took pictures with my point and shoot. You don't want to draw too much attention to yourself do you :mrgreen:

    I don't know any history of this depot, and the www doesn't tell you anything either.
    The building containing the bunker looks quite new. The depot is the base of Rushcliffe Borough Councils Recycling2go scheme.

    In all fairness, there isn't a great deal to see, as most of the rooms down there ane now used for storing archives. The bunker itself has a total of 11 rooms. I didn't take pictures of them all as they were just full of shelves and files

    Anyway, on with the pictures........

    Enjoy


    This is the sight that greeted me on driving up towards the main building

    Stairway down to bunker




    One of the 3 blast doors




    Corridor




    One of the rooms, now storing old computers etc




    Old aerial wires etc




    No idea what this is..... some sort of vent???




    Generator shots








    Filters




    Air intake fan





    This was my first ever bunker, just wish there was more to see

    Thanks for looking
    All things bright and beautiful.............

    isnt that cool, theres not too many county emergency centres about now. This looks like an 80's one which didnt get much use before the 1991 cessation of hostilities!
