Blean  Nuclear Bunker, Victory Wood by Brendan Conway

Blean Nuclear Bunker, Victory Wood

Opportunities to visit such nuclear bunkers are rare, but Forgotten Front Line and the Woodland Trust recently arranged a day for public access. Although the structure itself, built in 1966, is not particularly remarkable, the experience of visiting it provides a glimpse back to the dark days of the Cold War and what sadly might have been. This is the welcome view as you climb up the ladder to the hatch.
