Open day at Buckminster 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 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 have-a-go archery (small donation) and children’s activities.

Join re-enactor Jed Jaggard, of Up and At ‘Em History, at the bunker.
