Nuclear bunker garden office


It needs some slight refurbishment, but if you've ever fancied working in a former nuclear bunker, here's the very thing, on with Clive Emson Auctioneers to be sold by public auction on March 23 (guide price £10,000-£15,000).

The bunker is on the Peninsula Way (A228), close to Hoo villae, Rochester, Kent. It is around 7’ x 15’ with access from ground level down a vertical ladder. According to the auctioneers, it was once manned by two or three people (so adequate room for a shedworker) and was one of 1,500 similar underground monitoring posts around the UK build in the 1950s to report a nuclear attack and monitor the fall-out. This one up for sale was a master post which served other local ones nearby and like them was closed down in 1991.
