    Diesel,
    I was lucky enough to get a tour of the place with the MoD a couple of years ago, since I was doing my dissertation on PoWs in Britain.
    The huts were all in immaculate condition inside, the only problem was the peeling paint on the roof exteriors.

    I visited a couple of years ago, on an open day - so the public were swarming about. Pah! The huts are quite stripped out but it's a pretty interesting place

    The bunker is moist. It can be visited with permission, but they want to rob you blind for the privilege and crap on you with all sorts of "can and can't do's". They forked out for it but don't have the money to restore or maintain it properly. Hence the grant money in the previous story.

    Interesting place though.

    WOW :shocked:

    Now why can't that be down here in dull old Sussex :arghh:

    I am really, really liking that, it would be good to see it be made use of, rather than fall to bits like all the other sites that used to exist.
