    Default bawdsey bunker..permission visit ..pic heavy..

    first explore on this forum and i am going back soon to get down inside this place
    I only had a short time to get pics as person with the key only had 1 hour before having to return the keys so nothing of the underground bunker yet..
    first bit you see as you come through main gate


    A few nice bits still here as well,this was on the rear wall

    very much locked and rusted shut door.so rusty lock wouldnt undo.

    main building

    old inner gate still turns..



    there are some cell doors nearby but a bit dark to picture
    main desk inside main building.

    I think this was the fire building behind the main building.


    Then a quick run up the hill to see a rotor(I think thats what they are called)

    all the building up here were very trashed by vandals and by seems of it metal thievs as a lot of drain tops were missing so anyone else who goes here watch where you tread especially over the grass..
    if you cant wait that long look here for inside pics on the last permission visit.

    Think these are whats called the rotor bits.
    this is the far one fron the main gate there is 2 of these on site still


    beware of pidgeon poop inside these.

    the building to the left was a generator building.

    inside of the gen building

    also had a trek along the beach for a change
    found this which looked intreasting at first glance which is filled with earth


    looking back from the hole in the ground back towards the main site

    you will also find this nice pillbox.


    has a triangle bit here


    roof shot

    inside view looking back to the entrance

    had to take a pic out through the front hole.

    the front main bit is falling away from the entrance bit which is the far section in this pic..the main bit has cracked from the entrance and roof isnt leval.

    corrodiants of where the pill box is for anyone intreasted in going for a look



    there was another a bit further along the beach but i couldnt climb up and have a look as cliff side was almost vertical and no chance of coming over the top as this is where the school is,

    air vent shaft which has a thick concreate slab over the air ways


    overall shot of most of the main site..

    this floor is more solid than it looked as there is metal grid under them rotten wooden bits.

    which under this is A solid wall and nothing else.

    Hope to be back here very soon along with key holder and get underground as there is a confirmed way in but my problem at the moment is lack of free time and when i am free the key holder isnt..

    you need long exposures and light painting, or the ability to use flash well!

    Good effort fella -I can see you were uber keen on this!
    We usually recommend posting about 10 - 15 photos in a report - if you have more to share by all means add a link to your photo album at the end of your report.
    Hope you manage to get into the bunkers!

    Well done. A good torch will make things much easier, and safer. If you're going underground too i'd go with someone else.
