Praze ROC Bunker
I'm new here and this is my first post, I hope you enjoy.
OPEN All surface features remain intact. Externally the post is in reasonable condition but is deteriorating. The hatch is open however in poor condition. Internally the post is also in good condition apart from the door to the main living/monitoring quarters of the bunker which was blown off by the police who thought there were explosives inside. The table, shelf and cupboard remain together with a large splint, siren crate, GPO connection boxes and wiring.
Opened in 1961 and closed in 1968.

I went on a permission visit to the bunker and now have permission to attempt to restore it.
