Quite a few of those bunkers around the  country not open to the public
one near St Andrews in Fife,
another beside the Shropshire Union canal near Nantwich, Cheshire;
even marked on the map as such:

Re: Priceless!

There is another one near Mistley, but is a lot more obvious.
Just announced that the E K Cole  (Ecko) factory in Southend had one that even the workers didnt know existed - they were knocking down the factory and found it

The Essex one is open to the public and the one in Kent is used to store wine because of it's all year round stable temperature.
I've visited the Essex one and they have part of it laid out with quarters that would have been used by the Prime Minister and cabinet in the case of a nuclear attack.

You're right Strat.  Although it is underground there is a very tall tower that was used for communication that can be seen from miles around.

I remember the recent story of a village (I think) called Lunt.
Their road signs kept getting defaced Smiley
