    A few weeks ago I visited a local Cold War observation post. There are over 1500 of these sites around the UK, some of them still in service until the 90's! They were used to analyze the blast if the bomb dropped. See this fascinating site to see where they are http://www.subbrit.org.uk/rsg/roc/index2.shtml

    Looking down the shaft - it's a bit scary.

    Some sort of timer by the door, for the lights presumably?

    Ventilation hatch - close this very tightly in the event of fallout :)

    Of course, I left everything as I found it. Obviously, it would be trespass to visit these sites without permission.
