Event Details

Directions and tour times will be given when booking.

A relic of the Cold War when the volunteers of the former Royal Observer Corps trained to monitor instruments to alert the public and transmit vital readings to their Headquarters throughout the country should a nuclear attack have taken place. A guided tour will take you 15 feet down a vertical ladder to the underground Monitoring Room where a detailed talk is given on the Operational Procedures at that time. Now that the Cold War Era is history we can talk about the important role of the Royal Observer Corps and reveal the fully equipped underground bunker as it was. Above ground an introductory talk is given, also above ground is an exhibition room housing much memorabilia, instruments are also demonstrated. The tour also includes the Royal Observer Corp’s first role of identifying and reporting aircraft during WW11 with instruments of the day again demonstrated by the Team.

Pre-booked tours only. Children must be 10 or older and accompanied by an adult.
