Nuclear Bunker Put Up For Sale in Derbyshire

A decommissioned nuclear bunker and the surrounding land is up for auction on eBay, expected to fetch around 25 000 pounds. From the BBC:

The decommissioned cold war bunker, built in 1959 into a field in the Peak District, has attracted hundreds of hits.

The bunker has lighting and a phone line and can be used as living accommodation for short periods.

It is described by the private seller as “a rare opportunity to acquire a valuable piece of Cold War history”.

The bunker was built as a master monitoring post by the Royal Observer Corps (ROC), amid the threat of nuclear attack, but decommissioned after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
