The Bunker is in fair condition it was flooded and sealed when first visited but a group of local volunteers have uncovered the main entrance and pumped out 7 feet of water, the bunker is remarkable inside as the flood water has preserved most of the orignal features, the ecsape hatch has been found along with light switches, light bulbs, wooden seat frames, doors with there iron work and the issue hatches still have there wooden doors intact. The bunker has extra features such as a sump at the bottom of the main stairs and what looks like light passages linking each room. The bunker has again been resealed.
