    Arrow York - 20 Group ROC HQ - (York Group) - 2008

    Went here today with mickeylove, mexico75 and their families. And what a fantastic place it really is! Also met theoss and trousercowboy along the way.

    Date protected accommodation opened: 16.12.1961
    Date closed: 1992

    The bunker has been fully restored by English Heritage to its condition at closure in 1991. It looks a little strange now that housing has sprung up around it!

    The main ops room contains 1960's colour psychology to calm and help the occupants concentrate during the dark days of a nuclear war.

    The building also contains an awdrey unit, one of only 12 in the uk, designed to pinpoint the bombflash and remotely forward the details onward.

    Externals:




    Radiator room for generator:


    Airfilter room:


    Airlock door:


    Decontamination (three showers cleaned off 90% of the fallout dust)


    Canteen:


    Table of items in the canteen:


    Telephone exchange:


    Generator:


    Plotting room:













    Dormitory:





    Exit:



    Add your pics here as mine are a bit hit/miss.

    LOL, was trying to guess if there was anyone i hadnt seen before.

    Aparently shipton is being restored by the bunker trust, good news for those of us who thought it was going to be lost forever as a computer storage facility.
