Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Providing a rare opportunity to purchase a relic of the cold war is this former Royal Observers Corps Nuclear Fallout Observation Bunker (Post 31 Group 8). Situated in an elevated position 125metres above sea level just off the A514 between Stanton by Bridge and Ticknall and adjacent to a bridle way which passes though Robin Hood Woods part of the National Forest and leads down to St Brides Farmhouse which in turn leads towards Staunton Harold Reservoir. The bunker is part submerged underground and has access by a steel hatch and steel ladder which in turn leads to a lobby area, main room and a small area which we are led to believe was the toilet area. Some of the original fittings from the days of use are still in situ including a notice on the door and the remains of the telephone system. The present site is over grown but has a five bar gate with access onto the A514 and takes advantage of the superb views over Derby and the surrounding Countryside. Energy Rating: Exempt.
