This is an RH18 type of Battle HQ, the bunker is in poor condition because of flooding to a depth of 5 to 6 feet. The emergency hatch is missing but the steps are still in place, the emergency exit is some way from the cupola. This Bunker's cupola is in the form of a small pillbox with internal ladder leading down in to the internal rooms. Further investigation was not possible due to flooding.
