I took another visit to west raynham to show some guys up north around.this was my sixth visit there.we spent over seven hours there.and I went in quite a bit I have not been in all my visits.i will post a report on them bits in the new year.we did go in the medical block again.this time I took the time to photograph the decontamination block at the back.the block is set in three different chambers.with airlock doors.i don't really know the full workings of it.and I had a good look around to see how I thought it worked.and tried to do a fair bit of research on it to no avail..I guess the unit would have been used in a chemical attack or for fallout from a nuclear attack.with the air locks I presume the whole place could then lose all compression..to be honest it's quite an eerie place.its in pitch black.with no windows.its not eerie as in creepy.just eerie in how close and on the edge We were of a nuclear attack or a soviet invasion and use of chemicals.
This is the doors that lead from the medical block down to the de contamination block.
Main corridor heading down.
The thick red steel door gives you a clue of what this place is.
Stage one was filled with tyres.working it out this was were they would be stripped of there contaminated clothes
Once through the air lock door you head into stage two.there is a row of showers.these would be used to clean of contamination off.
We then head into stage three there is like what looks like a rack of beds.some say this was the morgue.i personally think is was them decompression beds were they isolate you under plastic.
Connected to room three was a little room simply named "control cell" just a few cupboards.and what looked like a telephone panel.i can imagine this prob had more controls and switches in here,and where it was all controlled from.the lights,the ventilation.etc.
The ventilation room and boiler room.all self contained in case of an electrics failure or sabotage.
That's it from here.if anyone else can add info I would be most grateful.thank you.
