The bunker is in very good condition as it sits high on a hill in woods over looking the former flying field. The bunker is very unusual in that it has 2 cupolas, the main cupola (farthest from the entrance) is of normal size whereas the nearer one is reached by a small flight of curved steps and is only half the width of the more standard one. Also on the east side of the Bunker is a small pit which looks like it carried the communication lines back to the other airfield defences.
