We were taken on a tour by Rachel (I think that was her name - she was the site manager) and she was excellent at describing what went on in the bunker. I never knew such places existed. Rachel was very informative and open to questions.
I did laugh on many occasions though - how primitive some of the activities were back in the 60's, 70's and 80's, eg. if a nuclear bomb was dropped, staff would have had to go outside and retrieve light sensitive paper from a gadget on the roof - BUT they were never supplied with protective suits - apparently "they" kept meaning to supply them but never got round to it. Maybe it's my warped sense of humour but it all seems to have been run on a wing and a prayer but a very serious wing and a prayer. Very "Dad's Army". Nowadays with all the Health and Safety rules you wouldn't even be allowed to work down there - not enough space per person etc.
Go and have a look. It's great and very well preserved.
