The Cypher Room

Work continues to locate the Cypher room / communications bunker, a possible third Bunker.

There are rumours of a tunnel from halfway up one of the staircases in the Main Bunker although there is no evidence of this presently visible. There are also reports that the entrance to the Cypher room was merely a hatch in the middle of a field – again no evidence has yet been found for this.
