Raf Daws hill bunker - October 2012

Recommended Posts

Visited with TBM and Cookie monster, This has been in my pipeline for a while so glad that i finally got around to going here and been in the 1st Group to crack it.

Warning to anyone else going there is security on the main site as we bumped into his dog but luckily not him however the dog was friendly and didnt bark. There is lots to see with a gym, Bank, Accommodation blocks and many more, However this Report is just on the bunker.

The Bunker is at RAF Daws Hill which is now decommissioned but used as Armed Response Training Center so is littered with lots of Blanks. It was a very interesting explore with seeing the camp and the main point of us going the Nuclear Bunker. Now to the interesting bit.

Its nuclear bunker, with 23,000 square feet (2,100 square meters) of space, housed high-tech equipment for the direction of nuclear bombers and guided missiles. I believe it was built in the 1940's. If you want more information about the place Google Raf Daws Hill.

There Was to many good pictures to choose from as its a big site but here are a few


Nice long Stairs









Thanks For Looking

      Churchills Pub Bolton - Feb 2018
      This week on Bygone Pubs we take a look into the derelict Grade two listed #Churchills #pub in #Bolton #Lancashire Formerly #TheRoseHillTavern.
      Many a #BoltonWanderers fan will remember a match day at Burnden Park then off to Churchills for a good old pint.
      Unfortunately, though the memories are all that remains.

      Explored here a couple of weeks ago seems a bit destroyed now which is a shame bet it was a decent explore at one point. 
      A bit of history,
      Royal Army Ordnance Corp (RAOC) Marchington, was built around 1957 and dealt with the supply and maintenance of weaponry and munitions and various other military equipment until 1993 when the Corp amalgamated with the Royal Logistics Corp. The site is now an industrial estate. It was also a Central Vehicle Depot during this time until the barracks closed in 1970, and the Territorial Army took over. Until it finally closed the site in the early 1980s. Marchington also housed the Armys fleet of Green Goddesses which came under the jurisdiction of the Office Of The Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM).The site is now an industrial estate. The Barracks lie bare and derelict and the married quaters have are all now private housing.

      Fantastic place to explore, very interesting. Those dishes are absolutely massive! Details on history coming soon...

      A bit of a pain in the back side to get in this one, they have really made an effort with those fences! There was no security though, once you find a way past the doubled up security fences it's smooth sailing. We did find one particular part of this place rather creepy, there is a rotten bed in a dark basement that was quite eerie and had a different feel than the rest of the decaying building. More information will follow on our website in a day or so.

      Not sure if this is in the right forum. Park Hill Estate is a gastly sight today although they are regenerating it. This made for quite a creepy explore. We have wrritten about the history of Park Hill Flats here.
