Not so secret anymore!!

Not so secret anymore!!
Burrows Bridge No 85 on the Shropshire Union canal in Cheshire

The sign refers to The Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker.
The site was first used in WW2 and a bunker built in the 1950's, after use as a military air traffic control centre it was abandoned until the Home Office took it over and rebuilt the bunker as a Regional Government HQ, one of 17 throughout the UK designed to enable government to continue in the aftermath of a major nuclear attack on the UK.

It was abandoned in 1992 at the end of the cold war... sold to a private company who opened it as a museum with a cold war theme in 1998.

.. interesting/not secret sign you discovered
.. beautiful view from where you took this shot, too - of course it made EXPLORE !

.. now, makes me wonder whatever came of the Fallout shelter my Grandfather built in Central Florida; during the Cuban Missile Crisis, he kept it stocked -- rotating supplies as needed.

.. think that land was part of what Disney World bought; can imagine the looks on those faces .. this is a 'what'?

oh, forgot to mention -- my Grandfather built it when he was 83 !
