Yes, a nuclear bunker. Not as substantial as the one in Perthshire we featured some time back though, this one is a much smaller unit, built in the early 1960s.

According to the agent, the bunker is ‘partly submerged underground’ and ‘situated on a generous plot’, with a secure steel hatch and ladder leading down into some open plan space, with added storage which is believed to have been a food store cupboard.

The main room also has electricity connected and ‘original fittings’, although there aren’t details of just what those fittings are. You’ll have to book yourself a viewing to find out the real detail here.

The bunker is to be found in a secure fenced location and on what’s described as ‘a generous plot’. I’m sure there are plenty of interesting uses for this outside its original purpose and with a guide price of £15,000, it is priced to attract people who fancy a niche project.

The auction for this takes place on Thursday 4th June 2015 at Barnham Broom Golf & Country Club at 11:30am. Images and details courtesy of William H Brown estate agents. For more details and to make enquiries, please visit their website.
