The bunker is in fair condition it has been pumped out of water, there is rubbish in each room, and the bunker does show signs of its use as a mushroom farm. The emergency exit is covered with a concrete slab but the ladder is still in place. There are however many unusual features, the bunker is built to a mirror image, there is a large sump at the bottom of the access steps and there is some pipe work still in place relating to this, the bunker also features vents low down in the walls in the main office and the runners room, also in the main office are what look like brackets to surport heating pipes and a row of coat hooks on one wall.
