Open day at Buckminster Cold War nuclear bunker

Have your say

A chilling reminder of Britain’s Cold War past will be open to visitors on Sunday.

The Buckminster Bunker hosts a free open day from 10am to 4pm for a chance to look around the Royal Observer Corps monitoring post which was set up in case of a nuclear war. Visitors are asked to meet at Buckminster Village Hall and catch a free shuttle service to the site.

There will be Cold War re-enactors and displays, Britain and the Bomb talk, tea, coffee and refreshments as well as children’s activities. Guests are invited to dress up.

Join re-enactor Jed Jaggard, of Up an’ at’ em! History, at the bunker.
