The bunker is in poor condition as it is flooded to a depth of 2 feet. The main entrance way is over grown and not accessable. The emergency hatch is missing but the escape ladder is still in place with only minor damage. The bunker has many original artifacts remaining including light fittings and light switches, fuse boxes (still with their fuses intact) and under the water level in the runners room what appears to be a basic electric heater low down at floor level !. The frames are still intact in the issue hatches and one of still has its door in place. This bunker looks to have been completely fitted out when it was built.
